The event is at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 10, 2010 for STARS Snowshoe and 11:30 am for STARS Snowshoe Stampede. You can pre-register online at runningseries.com for $25. The registration fee covers participation in one or both events. For additional information, please call 970-871-5371.

The STARS Snowshoe Round Up (2.4 miles / 3.8 Km), is on mapped trails of the Steamboat Ski Area. This course is a loop, 687 vertical feet and runs along packed snow trails in a beautiful forested area of the Resort. The start and finish line is in front of the slope side entrance to the Steamboat Ski & Sport retail store, across from the base of Christie Peak Express chair. Awards will be given out for top men and women finishers, as well as for the best crazy spring STARS Snowshoe Round Up costume! Local adaptive snowshoers from Horizons are invited to participate on a short course track as part of the Round Up event.

The STARS Snowshoe Stampede is a 100 yard dash. Dash up the hill in the same tracks as the Smartwool Cardboard Classic. Run up one side, scramble over a berm, and stampede down the other side. This event is a fun and amusing way for people to participate in the fundraiser without working up the long distance sweat! Awards will be given out for top men and women finishers.
