Description

The 2022 Santa Fe Snowshoe Classic is in-person and virtual.

The annual Santa Fe Snowshoe Classic is back! Register at runsignup.com to receive great swag, win prizes, and support Santa Fe Search and Rescue. The registration fee is $30, and any proceeds will go to Santa Fe Search and Rescue. In addition to volunteering at past Snowshoe Classics, Santa Fe Search and Rescue provides trained teams to participate in wilderness searches for people who are missing, injured, or lost. 

 

IN PERSON:

Gather at the Big Tesuque Campground off of Hyde Park Road on January 22, 2022. The race will start at 9 a.m. Please carpool and arrive early; parking is limited. The course is a 6-kilometer lollipop shape consisting of the Big Tesuque Trail (Tr. 152), the Winsor Trail (Tr. 254), and Pacheco Canyon Road (US Forest Rd.102). Assuming snow conditions are good, participants must wear snowshoes. All participants will receive a knit scarf, age group awards, and raffle prizes.

 

VIRTUAL:

Registered participants can complete their own 6-kilometer (3.5 mile) run or hike anywhere, any time between December 1, 2021, and January 31, 2022. Competing in snowshoes on snow is ideal, but one perk of a virtual race is that you can participate anywhere! If you live somewhere without snow, you may still sign up. All registrants will receive a knit scarf (Please make sure to register with your correct mailing address so we can mail the scarf to you; you will also have the option to pick it up at the Running Hub in Santa Fe.)

Swag!

A two-sided knit scarf.
