Snowshoe Lumberjack 5km & SkiMo Classic Event
March 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Winter or summer, we are always happy to be back at one our favorite venues, Mt. Abram. Join us on Saturday, March 7th for the Mt. Abram Lumberjack Snowshoe 5km
The 5km course will take place on a mixture of single track and groomed ski trails, criss crossing the Mt. Abram base area. But here’s the catch, as any good lumberjack would expect, there will be a pile of split fire wood at the start of the race…
Those who dare, may grab a log and run with it for the duration of the race. Racers may not carry the log in a backpack. They must carry it in their arms. Upon completion racers who have carried a log will be awarded 2 mins/mile off their time, so 6 minutes total if carried for the 5km. Racers will have the option to drop the log at the halfway point and still retain the 2 min/mile time subtraction up to that point. Of course, racers are also free to bypass the log and run the 5km without the extra weight, but keep in mind those finishing behind you may have a significant deduction to their time. This is a race of strategy and grit. Which lumberjack will prevail!?!?
Stick around after your race for a post-race Baxter Beer in the Loose Boots Lounge.
