The Frozen Ass was the second race in the Dion Eastern Ontario Snowshoe Running Series with points being awarded in the 8km event towards the overall series. The male and female series champions will each be awarded a pair of Dion Running Snowshoes at the conclusion of the series.
A big thank you to race director Sandy Musson of Tri and Run Sports and her team of volunteers for organizing an awesome race over a challenging course at the Batawa Ski Hill. Snow conditions were great and everyone in both the 4km and 8km races seemed to have a wonderful time on the trails.
Carl MacDonald won the mens 8km series points race in a time of 46:33, ahead of Peter Phillips and Grant Sutherland. In the 8km women’s series points race, Angela Maciejewski was the first across the line in a time of 54:07 followed by Sara Montgomery and Heather McNie.
Richard Bonathan won the 4km event in a time of 34:25, followed by Sandy Richards and Barry Defosse. Ashley-Lynn Whyte won the women’s 4km race in 35:43, followed by Joanne Campbell and Kim Dafoe.
As with all races in the series, snowshoes are provided for any participants wishing to try snowshoe racing who currently don’t own a pair of running snowshoes.
