Description

This race has been growing each year - and for good reason! 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 mile 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.

T-shirts will be available while supplies last. This year, these shirts will be super-soft cotton/poly short-sleeved t-shirts. The cost is $15/shirt.

Keeping You Safe (COVID-19 Procedures)

With any luck, COVID-19 will not be a factor in the 2021 race. If it is, we will update our COVID-19 policies for the race.

Will you be allowed to race on February 27?

In an effort to keep Vermont healthy during this pandemic, the State of Vermont has mandated that those who live in yellow or red areas on the map must quarantine for 14 days upon entry to Vermont or they may take a COVID test after 7 days and then come out of quarantine once they have a negative COVID result. If you are planning to race with us, you should know that Racevermont.com adheres to this policy. Please check this map link just prior to the race to be sure you will be allowed to run if you are from out of state.

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 Racevermont.com race of equal or lesser value. We do not offer refunds for unattended races regardless of who cancels the race.

Starting Groups/Corrals

Whether or not we use starting corrals for this race depends entirely on what the COVID-19 situation looks like as we get closer to race day. You will be asked for your race pace during registration. If the need for social distancing still exists, we will arrange rolling starts based on race pace. Stay tuned for more information.

Parking

Parking is on a first come first served basis at Shelburne Sugarworks. Overflow parking is available at the Buccaneers Practice field just east on Shelburne Hinesburg Road. Please be extremely cautious if walking on the road.

General Race Rules

It is every racer’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with our Racer Rules. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach to us at info@racevermont.com.

  • Parking may be offsite for an event. We recommend you bring a backpack to carry your personal belongings.   Racevermont.com is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
  • Please be on time and arrive no later than 10 minutes before the close of registration.
  • If you decide to use a music device or cell phone while running, please keep your volume low enough that you can hear traffic coming your way and our volunteers and/or timing team should they need to get your attention.
  • Racevermont.com has no objection to and does not discourage the safe and prudent use of strollers or baby joggers during some of our races. They are not allowed in any race that uses the Ti Path as the path is relatively narrow and it may be difficult to for racers to get by a stroller if there are runners going in both directions. Stroller or baby joggers or similar devices should be started in the back of the runners and walkers if they are allowed.
  • Racers must be courteous to other racers, volunteers, race officials, spectators at ALL times. Unsportsmanlike behavior will result in disqualification. In extreme cases, you will be banned from all future Racevermont.com races.
  • You will be running against traffic where instructed.
  • Do not run more than 2 abreast. Running down the middle of the road (or the middle of either lane) is strictly forbidden as the roads continue to be open to traffic.
  • All athletes must clearly display their bib #’s on the front of their body (not on the leg) throughout the race. Do not crumple your bib as this could cause damage to your timing chip which may result in the timing system missing you when you cross the start or finish line.
  • Race numbers MUST BE VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES, BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN APPROACHING THE FINISH LINE.
  • NO BANDITS ALLOWED!

1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female overall will receive a prize. These winners will be exempt from age group awards.
