MANCHESTER, VT – The Komen Vermont Snowshoe for the Cure returns to Stratton Mountain’s Sun Bowl area on Sunday, February 26, 2017. Online registration is now open at www.KomenNewEngland.org .
For those who haven’t been before, this is a very family-friendly, high-energy, goodtime, event (there will be a free Snowshoe Fun Dash for the 5-and- younger set, so be sure to bring the kids), and no snowshoe experience is required. As a matter of fact, snowshoes aren’t even required; free loaner snowshoes will be available from Snowshoe for the Cure’s Official Snowshoe Partner, Tubbs – while they last, sizes are limited, first-come-first-served, so if you’ve got a pair, bring a pair.
This year’s event, which benefits Susan G. Komen Vermont-New Hampshire’s breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs, will feature a competitive (if you’re so inclined) 3K race as well as a 3K and a 5K snowshoe walk, all through some of the most beautiful and scenic terrain Southern Vermont has to offer.
On-site registration opens at 7:30 am; the 3K Race starts at 9:00 am; the 3K and 5K walks start 9:10 am. The free Kids Snowshoe Fun Dash kicks off at 8:45 am.
Raffle will include several pairs of snowshoes courtesy of Tubbs Snowshoes.
