10K Snowshoe Race to Benefit the New Land Trust
Plattsburgh, NY– On January 20, 2013 DION Snowshoes will heat up winter on the Adirondack Coast with Cock-A-Doodle-Shoe. Cock-A-Doodle Shoe, one of the Northeast’s regional qualifiers for the 2013 USSSA National Snowshoe Championships, is a 10K snowshoe race that makes use of the rolling trails that cover most of New Land Trust’s 287 scenic acres in Saranac, NY. The competition is open to participants of all snowshoe levels with $150 cash prize and a very unique trophy for the overall male and female winners. The entry fee for the race is $15 ($20 day-of) which gets you a t-shirt (only guaranteed to those who pre-register), merchandise raffle eligibility and post-race refreshments. Proceeds from the event will benefit The New Land Trust, a non-governmental, not for profit organization dedicated to developing and sustaining their property for health of the environment and the enjoyment of the public. Cock-A-Doodle-Shoe will begin promptly at 10:00am on Sunday January 20 with registration from 8:00am-9:45am for participants who did not pre-register at PreRace.com.
