If you are a new race director and want your race to be part of the series you can contact Braveheart at email@example.com.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 “Cute Moose” web site on the “Snowshoe Event” page. See www.cutemoose.net Participating races are indicated by "Snowshoe Series" adjacent the races listed on the "Snowshoe Event” page. If there are multiple races for one event you may do any or all of them provided you complete each race entered.
The USSSA National Competition: Any of the races completed will
count for the series. This includes the citizens and relay races. See www.snowshoeracing.com
event schedule and regulations.
This year the series will have 5 race classifications:
Open Class - The participant may wear any size and or style snowshoe as long as the snowshoe is no smaller than the minimum requirements of the United Stated Snowshoe Association (USSSA). See: www.snowshoeracing.com

Classic – Requires the participant to wear a wood frame snowshoe. The snowshoe can be any size and any decking material, but the snowshoe must have a wood frame.
There will be separate drawings for each of the race classifications, so participants will be eligible for more than one prize.
