Competitive snowshoeing is becoming the next big thing in this area. Nearly 100 people completed the 7K Horse Hill Snowshoe Race on Saturday February 7. The following NHTI shoers completed the race: Derek Burton (8th in 40:49, 1st in age group), Tim Kneuer (11th in 43:03, 1st in age group), Greg Keilig (15th in 44:45, 2nd in age group), Tom Walton (22nd in 47:53, 2nd in age group), Oscar Castillo (27th in 49:21), Nick Cote (32nd in 50:33), and Julia Glisson (85th in 1:16:50, 2nd in age group).
The 2015 World Snowshoe Championships were held on January 31 in Quebec City. NHTI alum and All American cross country runner Nacho Hernando (left) finished 10th overall. He was the fastest competitor from his home country, Spain.
NHTI students, faculty, and staff are currently snowshoeing the beautiful new trail behind North Hall on Tuesdays at noon and Fridays at 2 pm. They meet in the Wellness Center. Contact Perry Seagroves, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information about NHTI snowshoeing.
