The main event will be held on Sunday, February 13th with a staggered start of groups doing various distances between (6, 14, & 30km – the 30km route is just doing the 15 km route twice). Maps will be available for both days in addition to snowshoe routes for those interested in snowshoeing! After the main event, there will be a wrap-up celebration from 12 PM to 2 PM, including prize giveaways, bratwurst and beers!
In addition, the club is offering prizes for everyone who raises over $100 (Sparkling Hill has even offered a premium two nights stay as a prize)!

You don’t want to miss out – the prize line-up last year was phenomenal!
