  • 4th Annual Winter Wheezer- including fat biking now! February 28th

    4th Annual Winter Wheezer- including fat biking now! February 28th

    Date: 
    Sunday, February 28, 2016 - 10:00

    With February fast approaching, it's time for the 4th Annual Winter Wheezer, Sunday February 28th 2016. Hallelujah I hear you cry!

    Yep, there is no better way to spend your Sunday than battling it out on the snow covered trails we promise you. With great routes - short and fast!, great prizes, and of course that much loved post-wheeze personal satisfaction.

    This year's race is similar, yet a little bit different, with Snowshoe Running and Nordic (Classic & Skate) options remaining. However a new guy is joining the party...Fat Biking!

    As a soloist or in a team of two, you can either Snowshoe, then Nordic. Or, Snowshoe then Fat Bike. Please note you can't Nordic then Fat Bike (this year), as too many categories makes it a little tricky for us organizers! But watch this space for 2017...

    New also this year is that, come race week, conditions dependant, we will make a call on whether snowshoes are mandatory, or whether you can just wear your trail shoes/hiking boots. With narrow trails and unknown conditions, ditching the snowshoes are often a more favourable option for your ankle bones and traction!

    Join our Winter Wheezer 2016 Facebook Event Page, to stay up to date on the 2016 race, find a training buddy or racing partner, or take part in some kind hearted, yet Fernie competitive, pre-race banter...
