The Events

Come and join us for the annual Snowshoe Races in 2020! There are distances for both levels: a 5km race, and the family-friendly 1km walk/run.

The races will occur in the park and $5 of every entry goes directly to the Silver Skate Festival Society.

As in previous years, we expect families with children to participate, as well as highly competitive athletes that have raced at international events and are aiming for personal bests. So, there will be levels for everyone.

As the fastest growing winter sport, many people are getting into the sport to stay fit in the winter. Come check out this amazing activity!


  • All participants will have a chance to win awesome draw prizes.
  • Post-race munchies and hot drinks will also be available to all race participants.
