Strap on your snowshoes and conquer the cold on Hammond Hill in the Ithaca area’s only snowshoe race.
Race: Super Frosty Loomis
Snowshoes? That’s right, when winter covers our beloved trails, some of us switch to snowshoes and keep right on running. Racing snowshoes are a far cry from the tennis racket-shaped gear of yesteryear—you strap them on over your normal running shoes to get a stable platform that keeps you on top of the snow. It’s harder than running, but incredible exercise and huge fun to boot. So conquer the cold in the Ithaca area’s only snowshoe race!
The well-marked course is part of the Hammond Hill State Forest trail system, which is commonly used for skiing and snowshoeing, so it should be packed down unless there is a big snowfall the night before. Don’t worry if you don’t have snowshoes, since we’ll have a few pair available to borrow.
