Im Schnee festsitzen Trail Run -XC Thrillogy
January 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
(German) means… “to be trapped in the snow”
Bristol Woods is the perfect host for the 3rd Annual im Schnee festsitzen Trail Run. This beautiful park and trails take you through upland forest, wetlands, oak savanna remnants, and prairie areas.
This event is the first of two XCThrillogy’s Choose Your Own Trail Adventure. Choose Your Own Trail Adventure allows the participant to decide their distance for the event based on fitness, goals, and Mother Nature (and we ALL know how unkind she can be). Starting at 10:30, participants have three hours to run, walk, snowshoe, or frolic the three mile looped course as many times as they would like.
This event is also the first race of the 2018 CaniCross Event Series. If you are wondering what CaniCross is, you are not alone. It is similar to mushing, but instead of pulling a sled, your dog is pulling you through the trails. All that is required is a gang line, harness, and canicross belt. This event is a timed three mile loop. While it can be competitive, it also can be a fun way to test out both your and your dog’s fitness. For more information about our CaniCross Events, visit our CaniCross website, www.traildogrunners.com
After you are done, enjoy beef stew, soup, hot chocolate and Schnapps as you enjoy the company of your fellow trail enthusiasts. Please BYO beverage or dessert to share! Surprise swag, fun awards, and great company make the ending of your im Schnee festsitzen Choose Your Own Trail Adventure memorable.
This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog friendly for those not interested in the CaniCross Event.
Kenosha Running Company will donate part of the proceeds of this event to the Pringle Nature Center to help them continue environmental education to the community at large.
