The Braveheart Snowshoe Racing Series is returning for the 8th year!
If you are a new race director and want your race to be part of the series you can contact Braveheart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It works as follows:
First of all, There is NO fee to participate.
Runners must register for each race individually. To participate in the series, racers contact Dave Sykora at email@example.com with name, email address and phone number stating that you want to be in the series.
Important: In order for the race to count you will be required to report your participation in each race to Dave within a week of completing the race. Only races that are part of the series will count. Participating races can be found on the Snowshoe Event page of this website and are indicated by a "Braveheart Series" designation. If there are multiple races for one event you may do any or all of them provided you complete each race entered.
This year the series will have 4 race classifications:
Mountaineering - Requires the participant to wear a 30 inch or larger snowshoe any construction plus 15-lb pack (back or fanny) or weighted vest. A special award will be awarded to any individual that completes the Mountaineering Division in both Perkinstown and Stomp the Swamp. The venueís regulations will apply.
Note : There are race venues that have their own regulations for their Mountaineering race; i.e. Perkinstown, Badger State Games and Stomp the Swamp. It is recommended that you abide by these regulations. If you wish only to acquire points towards the Braveheart Series follow the series regulations, DO NOT enter the venues Mountaineering race and PLEASE notify the venues race director of your intention before the start of the race.
The major prizes (snowshoes, running shoes, etc.) will be awarded with an all-in drawing. There will also be separate drawings for each of the race classifications, so participants will be eligible for more than one prize.
Prizes will be awarded based on drawings held at the end of the season. The awards for 2017 will be distributed at the “Stomp the Swamp” snowshoe race on February 26th located at Nine Mile County Forest in Wausau, WI. For every series race completed and reported to Dave Sykora the participantís name will be entered into a drawing. Note: Races completed after February 26th will count toward 2018 series totals.
will include: Snowshoes and other items to be posted on this web-site at a later date.
