The Sugarhouse Snowshoe 5K/10K is back this year! This race appeals to competitive snowshoe runners as well as relaxed fitness walkers. You'll be treated to a beautiful run through the sugar grove of Shelburne Sugarworks. If mother nature cooperates, this will be a snowshoe race. Otherwise, it will be a 5K run/walk or 10K run. You'll start and finish at Shelburne Sugarworks where there could be some sugaring in the works (depending on Mother Nature).

Just prior to the race, we will be offering a short (200-300 yard) race for kids. This portion of the race will be free. No awards or shirts will be involved with this "fun run" snowshoe event.

Race t-shirts

T-shirts are available for purchase during registration. These super soft cotton poly blend shirts are available in men's and women's sizing. Men's shirts run true to size. Women's shirts are more fitted. The price is $15 and may be purchased through February 6, or as long as quantities are available.

Refund Policy

Should this race get cancelled due to extreme weather or by order of the governor or other government official, you will have the option to either defer your registration to next year's Sugarhouse Snowshoe 5K/10K or transfer to another race of equal or lesser value. We do not offer refunds for unattended races regardless of who cancels the race, and transfers/deferrals will only be offered in the event that this race is cancelled.
