Dion Frontenac Snowshoe Race - Final Course Update

(January 22, 2010) We're just back in from setting up the course for the Dion Frontenac Snowshoe Race.

Conditions will be fast for most of the route with hard packed snow. There are a few sections that feature some uneven footing between the 2 - 4 km point. You'll have to pay close attention to the trail here, but it was in that much better shape after we went over it a couple of times this afternoon. I'll be running the course first thing tomorrow morning again and that should help to smooth it out further.

On the whole though, the conditions are very good and will make for an awesome race.

Looking forward to a fun day tomorrow.

See you soon!



  1. Derrick and Sara! Thank you so much! What a wonderful healthy way to spend a January Saturday morning. Thanks for all of your efforts-it is great work that you are doing, with your participants and the community reaping boundless benefits!
    .....and really there was blood-I can't believe I did that!

  2. Thanks Karen. It was a great day in the park. So much fun to see everyone out having a great time on the trails.

    Funny thing...I dinged my ankle and drew blood during my morning run of the course too. Didn't realize it until later.
