Trail shoes are recommended (instead of road shoes). Expect some parts to be muddy but otherwise the footing will be similar to how you'd experience the terrain in the spring.
Since its creation in 2005, the Brave the Blizzard 5K Snowshoe Race offers participants a low key and fun opportunity to try out snowshoeing. Whether you're experienced in snowshoes or this is your very first time, we welcome you to join us! Rentals are available for $5.

Enjoy the festive atmosphere with music playing, Frosty the Snowman cheering for you, and post race refreshments. It is otherwise a low-key event. There is not a physical item giveaway. Baked goods are given to the Top 3 Male and Female finishers but there are no age group awards.
Head to the Results section to also see photo and video from across the years.
Help make the race happen!
Brave the Blizzard was created in 2005 by the Albany Running Exchange.
Prior to 2016, it was primarily a 5K, although some years it was 3.5M or 4M.
From 2016 through 2018, a 5.5M was also held.
