Race Recap: Ignite the Night Snowshoe Race 2017


A review of the Ignite the Night Snowshoe race, which had both 5K and 10K options for the evening race.

165 racers came out to support this great event even though it had switched from snow to trail racing.   Again, this year there were two options for racers a 5K, and a 10K circuit and the course flowed nicely amongst the buildings. I preferred this route to last years and thoroughly enjoyed the muddy bits, as a seasoned OC racer, and I had to refrain myself from climbing things along the way.  The MC had joked with our team that we were not allowed to play with his ropes as our reputation for serious OCR fanatics had gotten back to him.  We had a commanding presence this year with almost 30 participants coming in from Toronto, Montreal, Kingston and Ottawa, and scheduling it as one of our annual off-season training events.
