Let’s get ready to snowshoe

New leg added to Royal LePage Snow to Surf Adventure Relay Race

COMPETITORS WILL BE snowshoeing at next year's Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race.

It is now confirmed – there will be a snowshoe leg that will replace the first running leg in the Royal LePage Snow to Surf Race for 2013.

Tim Defert, the new snowshoe leg boss, says, “The groomed course will meander through second growth forest, cross a creek and finish through open country on wide trails and should take between 25 and 60 minutes.”

The course will transition from the cross-country skier and meet up with the off-road running leg. This will detour the use of racing on the Strathcona Parkway that has caused congestion during the race in previous years.

“We always like to keep the race exciting and there are many snowshoers out there. It just seemed a natural choice,” says Rick Gibson, chairperson of Royal LePage Snow to Surf.

This nine-person team relay race that takes place April 28, 2013, will include alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing,  running, mountain biking, kayaking, road cycling and canoeing.

It will finish at the Comox marina with post-race action that will bring tons of excitement to the Comox Valley, a race spokesperson said. Registration will be available online on Nov. 16 at www.snowtosurf.com.
