CANCELLED Snowshoe 5K: Sugar Dragon Scurry

January 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It’s back! Featuring a 5k competitive run, a 2k just-for-fun run (families and sleds welcome!), and a youth loop run, this event is designed to be a blast for everyone from first-time snowshoers to the experienced winter athlete. But the races are just part of the fun- we’ll have all sorts of other winter activities including snowman building, crafts, sledding, fat tire bike demos,AND end it all with delicious Riveredge pancakes and maple syrup. (And of course, the chance to try and find the elusive friendly Riveredge Sugar Dragon that helps us collect sap from our maple trees each year!)

This fan favorite event is a fantastic way to get outside with family and stay active this winter! Participate as an individual or as a family. Costumes are more than welcome!
