A team based snowshoe race combined with navigation by map and compass. Competitors travel on and off-trail to checkpoints located throughout The Blue Mountains stunning forests and parklands. Go as hard, or as easy as you like, however the more checkpoints you collect the higher you’ll rank. Teams of two have up to 3-hours to collect as many checkpoints as possible.
The official training event for this year’s Snowshoe Raid Adventure Run is the Icebreaker Adventure Run. The Icebreaker event includes many of the same adventure running navigation and running skills that will be tested in the Snowshoe Raid. Train as a team or train on your own.
