Snowstorm Classic Holiday Break

December 23th, 2021


We will be back in-person on Jan 8th with the 10K. In the meantime, why not run virtually?
  • We'll follow the same virtual format and rules we used last year
  • Run the week's course on your own anytime over the weekend. This will be on the honor system. You do not need to submit any Strava, Garmin or any other GPS data. We can not put down any permanent markings on the course, so you will need to be familiar with the course.

  • The two weeks will not count towards any Snowstorm stats or records, but if you do choose to participate in the virtual race, they will count in the official stats for consecutive races.  It will not 'break' your streak if you do not.   Virtual Races will not be part of the point series so there will only be an eight week point series.  
  • Email your finish time, along with your name, age, and any USATF club affiliation to snowstorm@harriers.org no later than Sunday. Results will be compiled and posted on harriers.org the following Monday.
  • And lasty, virtual race weeks will be free of charge!
