5K Snowshoe Race

Saturday December 7, 1996


End of El Dorado Road

5K+ via musher & snowshoe trails

down into Goldstream, up to KUAC transmitter, down ridge line

Mostly cloudy -15° to -5° F Calm Very good fresh snow conditions

Once again, a field of 16 (not runners this time but snowshoers), successfully followed all the red arrows in the snow and the red pie plates on the trees, and completed the trail loop. The two race directors laid out a challenging course that started out following the mushers trail, down towards the floor of Goldstream Valley. The snowshoe trail then snaked up through the birch forest, to the ridge crest at the KUAC transmitter, and descended back down to the start through more birch and aspen forest. Prizes were awarded to the three fastest finishers who stayed for the awards ceremony; prizes included gifts donated by the race sponsor, All Weather Sports, plus a coveted Omaha Marathon bag donated by one of the race directors.
