acidoticFor people who enjoy competing in trail running or obstacle races, the winter offseason can be a difficult time. Without the chance to scratch that competitive itch, racers can become stir-crazy, twitching maniacs. Or drunks.

The solution is to not let a little cold and snow stand in the way of your racing. Snowshoe races offer a great opportunity to get outside and compete. And the folks at Acidotic Racing in New Hampshire put on some of the Northeast’s best snowshoe races each winter.

Acidotic currently has four snowshoe races scheduled this winter:

Sidehiller Snowshoe Race in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire on January 25
Kingman Farm Moonlight Snowshoe Race in Madbury, New Hampshire on February 14 (Valentine’s Day, unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your significant other)
Exeter Snowshoe Hullabaloo in Exeter, New Hampshire on February 21
The New Hampshire and Northeast Snowshoe Championship in Moultonborough, New Hampshire on March 7.
