The Icebreaker Snogaine

January 13, 2007

Woolastook Park, Fredericton

The Foxes teamed up with the Fredericton Adventure Racing Club to stage the Icebreaker Snogaine, held at Woolastook on January 13th. When the planning was being done we hoped for snow, and the opportunity to ski and snowshoe. The New Year started green and brown rather than white, although by race day, there were a few inches of snow on the ground. Not enough to ski in the woods, and no need for snowshoes. Some of the adventure racers tried out their bikes, but all except one decided to tackle the course on foot.

The turnout was pleasing, and suggests that "off-season" events are viable. We got lucky with the weather, which started cloudy with a temperature around the freezing mark, and ended with bright sun with the thermometer a few degrees lower. Many controls were easy, in case access was primarily skiing on the trails, but there were some "deep woods" controls to entertain the more adventurous navigators. There was a great diversity of people at the starting line, including bikers, adventure racers, marathon canoeists, skiers, marathoners, and orienteers. Also pleasing was the spread of ages, with a high proportion of juniors. Several racers attended from Halifax, and we were pleased to see regulars from the Falcons and Fundy clubs.
