It was 50 degrees F colder today, than it was one year ago for the first running of this race. But it was 10-15 degrees warmer than had been forecast. And that brought out a large group of snowshoers. Despite the cold temperatures, the only complaints were a few cold feet and one frosty ear. Rocky Reifenstuhl and Andy Holland led the group along the out and back 7K course, finishing with times of 31:33 and 31:37. Tina Devine at 38:20 led the women.. Sharon Alden won the short course 3.5K race.
