Bigfoot Snowshoe Race - The Challenge of Running On Snow
MBR UNIQUE RACE: There isn’t anything complicated about running with snowshoes. You just have to remember to pick up your feet. The challenge, as with any winter running, is keeping yourself dry - because wet clothes can kill you.Beyond the normal challenge of sweating from all the extra exertion, racing snowshoes tend to throw around a lot of snow. In loose snow, it looks like a snow squall is following you when you run. Half of it falls on you, so you should wear clothing that sheds the snow.
