The races in the Snow Cheap Trail Series are my favorite races to do in the winter. Getting out to Cobbs Hill Park in the dark all ready with a headlamp, reflective gear, trail shoes and my Yaktrax in the snow and below freezing weather is a blast. Though it's not something that everyone plans on doing on Wednesday nights during the winter, I'd highly recommend giving it a try. The atmosphere of the race is outstanding and low key. About 200+ people come out to trek through the snow, climb some steep hills, and be absolutely blown away by how tough 3-4 miles can be.
The after party in Riley Lodge, post-race food, door prizes, and sweet Snow Cheap shirt to match the Dirt Cheap shirt are just a few of the awesome perks to this race series.
