Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series @ Bradbury Mountain | Pownal | Maine | United States

Trail Monster Running is proud to host the Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series at Bradbury Mountain State Park in Pownal, Maine. The Bradbury Mountain Snowshoe Series test racers on three separate courses circling and climbing Bradbury Mountain in all manner of snow conditions. We hope to see you this winter.

2018 SCHEDULE
All races start at 11:00am.

Bradbury Squall, 3 miles – Sunday, January 21

Bradbury White Out, 4 miles – Sunday, February 11

Bradbury Blizzard, 5 miles – Sunday, March 4

Race and snow condition updates will be available on our FACEBOOK page.

Thanks to Dion Snowshoes for providing a limited number of loaner snowshoes for all our races. Snowshoes will be available on a first come first serve basis to registered racers. An email will be sent to registered racers a week before each race to announce snowshoe availability. You must be registered to reserve snowshoes. Even if you have previously requested snowshoes on your registration form, in a separate email, on Facebook, by carrier pigeon, smoke signals, etc., you must respond to the email in order to be on the snowshoe loaner list. Ultimately, all racers are responsible for having snowshoes at the race. In the same way that we cannot provide running shoes for everyone, we can’t be expected to provide snowshoes. We do our best to accommodate everyone, but having the proper gear is the racer’s responsibility. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

PLEASE NOTE: Parking at Bradbury Mountain State Park is very limited, and we encourage carpooling to the races whenever possible. Thank you
