– This Saturday, January 17, 2015 DION Snowshoes will heat up winter on the Adirondack Coast with the third annual Cock-A-Doodle-Shoe Snowshoe Race. The Cock-A-Doodle-Shoe
, one of the Northeast’s regional qualifiers for the 2015 USSSA National Snowshoe Championships in Eau Claire, WI, offers a 5K and 10K snowshoe race that makes use of the rolling trails covering most of New Land Trust’s 287 scenic acres in Saranac, NY. The competition is open to participants of all levels with a $150 cash prize for the overall male and female winners in the 10K race and a very unique trophy to the overall male and female winners in the 5K race. The entry fee for the race is $15 ($20 day-of) which gets you a t-shirt (only guaranteed to those who pre-register), merchandise raffle eligibility and post-race refreshments. New to the event this year, families can now let the kids take part in the fun with the ½ mile Kids Snowshoe Scramble, a $5 entry.
Proceeds from the event will benefit The New Land Trust, a non-governmental, not for profit organization dedicated to developing and sustaining their property for health of the environment and the enjoyment of the public. The Cock-A-Doodle-Shoe will begin promptly at 10:00am on Saturday, January 17 with registration from 8:00am-9:45am.
