The Dion Winter Goose Chase 7k snowshoe running race winds through the trails in the beautiful Shades Mills Conservation area in Cambridge, Ontario. The Dion Winter Goose Chase Snowshoe race is the 3rd race in the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series. Your race fee includes participation in the event, a registration gift, a delicious pancake breakfast, and your chance to win many fabulous draw prizes from our sponsors - including a pair of DION racing snowshoes.
If you don't own snowshoes, you can rent a pair (during online registration) to race in on race day for $10. Proceeds to support the Michael Fleming Centre and Beyond 21. Come on out and chase the goose, gander and geese through the snow. Please note that this race has a maximum registration cap of 100 entrants. There will be no race day registration. Online registration only.
As of September 17, we are out of rental snowshoes. You can still register and run, but runners who have not reserved a pair of snowshoes online, will need to arrange to borrow or bring their own snowshoes to race in.
