5K and 10K races. All events start at the Porcupine Mountain Ski Lodge. The 5K and 10K are independent loops. The 5K is a clockwise tour of the Deer Yard and Superior Loop. The 10K is a counterclockwise loop including the Big Hemlock Trail, a short segment of the Union Spring Trail, and the Log Camp Trail. Both courses are groomed. The 10K course includes far reaching vistas of Lake Superior. The 5K course brings snowshoers out to the shoreline of Lake Superior.
Early registration is encouraged to help with planning. However, participants may still register Sunday morning from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. at the Porcupine Mountain Ski Lodge. Pre-registered participants pick up their race materials at this time.
Awards will be given to the top three in each age group for each race. Overall male and female winners in the 10K will receive a pair of Atlas Snowshoes. Overall winners of the 5K will receive a Petzl Headlamp. Age group awards for each race include local maple syrup.
