The 2018 WSSF North american Junior snowshoe Championship / Nicolas Pendl 5k

This year will mark the fourth edition of our 5k event in memory of Nicolas Pendl as well as being designated the WSSF Junior North American Snowshoe Championship for 2018!  Nicolas was a gifted snowshoer and member of the Paul Smiths Striders team who unexpectedly passed away in August of 2014.  Though his time in the snowshoe community was short he definitely made an impact on the race and those around him.  As always this will be a family friendly event open to all!
