Message from the Race Director
We now realize that the racecourse was short by about a quarter mile. We will correct this next year. Also, apologies to Chris T for not getting him his first place medal in the M20-29 age group.
Thank you to all of the racers and volunteers who made the 2019 Snowshoe Race a wonderful event.
For a complete list of race results Overall and sorted by age, please go to our Results page.
Photos from the race are now posted on our 2019 Race Photos page.

16th Annual Sandia Mountain Snowshoe Race
Please plan to join us for the 16th Annual Sandia Mountain Snowshoe Race, presented by the Friends of the Sandia Mountains on Saturday, January 26, 2019. The Race will begin at 10:00 am at the lower level parking lot at Sandia Crest and is a 5-km/3.1 mile tour through beautiful trails in the Cibola National Forest.
Registration instructions will be available at this web site (www.sandiasnowshoe.com) beginning in late November.
All proceeds go to the Friends of the Sandia Mountains for preservation and maintenance of trails and other US Forest Service resources.
The registration fee includes pre- and post-race refreshments, the required parking fee at the Crest, and prizes in several categories. The race is limited to 150 participants, and racers of all levels are invited to participate. The registration limit is usually met early, so please don’t delay and miss out on the fun.
We suggest that you try to carpool to the Crest on race day. Parking may be limited.
