Snowshoeing

Head Coach:  John Bogasky Email: snowshoeing@somdmontgomery.org

Season: November to February

Overview: Snowshoe is a running sport similar to track, but with snowshoes on.  Typical events are a 50M run, 100M run, 4×100 Relay, etc.

Practices: We hold fitness and dryland training practices at Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg.  See address below.  When it snows and we can safely travel, we have on-snow training at Bohrer Park.  Practice runs on Saturdays from 9-10:30 AM starting Nov 11, 2017 and continues until the weekend before Winter Games.

Where: Bohrer Park, 512 S. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD 20877.  Meet at the picnic pavilion

Time Trials and Winter Games, Feb. 25-27, 2018: This year, Special Olympics Maryland has combined Winter Games and Snowshoe Time Trials into a single event.  Time Trials will occur on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at the Whitetail Ski Resort. Winter Games will start on the following day, Monday, February 26, 2018 and continue through Tuesday, February 27, 2018, also at Whitetail.  We encourage all athletes to participate in Time Trials as day-of athletes even if other commitments (e.g., work, school) prevent them from attending Winter Games.  Athletes qualifying for Winter Games will be housed in hotels for two nights in Hagerstown with chaperones and the coaching staff.  All snowshoe athletes wishing to compete for medals at Winter Games must first participate in Time Trials.
