Bradbury Blizzard 5 Mile Snowshoe Race

 

Trail Monster Running is proud to host the Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series at Bradbury Mountain State Park in Pownal, Maine. The Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series test racers on three separate courses circling and climbing Bradbury Mountain in all manner of snow conditions. We hope to see you this winter.

Race and snow condition updates will be available on our FACEBOOK page.

Thanks to Dion Snowshoes for providing a limited number of rental snowshoes for all our races. Snowshoes will be available on a first come first serve basis to registered racers for $5 per pair. An email will be sent to registered racers a week before each race to announce snowshoe availability. You must be registered to reserve snowshoes. Even if you have previously requested snowshoes on your registration form, in a separate email, on Facebook, by carrier pigeon, smoke signals, etc., you must respond to the email in order to be on the snowshoe loaner list. Ultimately, all racers are responsible for having snowshoes at the race. In the same way that we cannot provide running shoes for everyone, we can’t be expected to provide snowshoes. We do our best to accommodate everyone, but having the proper gear is the racer’s responsibility. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

PLEASE NOTE: Parking at Bradbury Mountain State Park is very limited - we encourage carpooling to the races whenever possible. Thank you.

ALSO NOTE: All dogs must be leashed in the State Park and racing with your dog is not permitted (50 runners + singletrack + snowshoes + dogs = disaster)

Please visit Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series for additional details and registration steps

Participant Agreement Policy 

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
