Snow or Shine, the Race is on

Big Bear Lake, CA, February 14, 2014 – One slogan of our annual snowshoe race is, “If you can walk you can snowshoe,” and given our dry winter, this year’s competitors may actually be on foot. Organizers say the 7th Annual Snowshoe the Bear will go on February 22nd at 10:00 a.m., even if turns out to be a trail run. Event producer Karen Lundgren is keeping her fingers crossed for snow, but knows that dry land shouldn’t discourage outdoor enthusiasts. She says, “The rewards of running in Big Bear’s backcountry are priceless with beautiful pine trees and Big Bear Lake as your backdrop. It’s definitely worth it.” The 5k and 10k courses begin in the Village, then ascend along the meandering forest trails to the south. The day also includes a kids’ race and EXPO event at noon, and an awards ceremony and raffle from 1:00 to 2:00, in the midst of exhibit booths, live music and product giveaways. And with an average of 200 participants plus spectators, it’s a fun festival atmosphere. If Mother Nature surprises us with some white stuff, snowshoe rentals and purchases are available at a number of local stores. Registration is now open at snowshoethebear.com or by phone at (909) 224-9315. [Photos courtesy...
