Iola Twilight Snowshoe Race
Iola Winter Sports Club
The fabled nordic ski venue in the glaciated hills north of Iola provides the setting for this one of a kind nighttime snowshoe race. The event starts at 6:00 pm and features a completely lighted 5K loop on the nordic ski trails. Even in the low snow year of 2013, the trails were still blanketed with snow.
On Race Day: February 1, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m.
Current Registration Status: Closed
|5K & 10K||
All events start near the ski chalet at the Iola Winter Sports Club. The 5K loop features a combination of the blue and green marked trails on the nordic ski system. The course is comprised of rolling terrain in wide groomed and relatively fast terrain. The course is lighted, but some snowshoers prefer using a headlamp for a boost of light in some areas.
A donation is made to Iola Winter Sports Club to support children's cross country ski programs.
