On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) will host their annual snowshoe race, starting at 10 a.m.
The 7.55 km Summerstown Forest Race is part of the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series, which includes events in various locations across Eastern Ontario. This will be the fourth race of eight this season.
Local favourite Rob Lefebvre, who lives just down the road from the Summerstown Forest, will be looking to defend the title he won the last two years.
As was the case last year, a second, shorter race – the Summerstown Forest Challenge Race (3.5 km) – will be offered at the same time, to attract other local recreational runners and younger racers. Limited equipment rentals are available.
