Frontenac Park Snowshoe Race 2010

Saturday 23rd of January 2010 was the date of the first (ANNUAL?) Dion Frontenac Snowshoe Race.
Results are here and a few more detailed race reports are here and here.
It was my first snowshoe race and I had alot of fun testing my skills on the single track trail winding up and down and around Frontenac Park. It was a beautiful sunny day and had time to chat with many friends I only get to see at events like this. Thanks to Derrick and Sara of Spafford Health and Adventure for putting on such a great event along with all of the volunteers who made this event so enjoyable.
I have posted a few unedited videos below my Mom Jane Newman-Ralph took along with a video of her and her dog JT for those who may be interested.

Cool videos, all of them! I missed the start, so was great to have a chance to see it. Neat seeing the agility video too.

Congrats again on a really great race!!!

Thanks for posting the beginning of the race it was fun to see from that angle(as I was the timer at the finish/chili maker) :) As a side note wanted to mention I enjoy reading your URG comics on Derrick's blog, as well most recently in Ultrarunner Magazine! Congrats! Jenn Iskiw (Keith's wife)

Hey Jenn, I found out later that was you behind the chili pot. The chilli really hit the spot after the race. Sara has raved about what great crew you are for Keith. BTW I really liked both of your videos. The Haliburton one was almost a feature film. Sara should have listed it as Best Ultra Film of the year on her "Trail and Ultra Running Blog Awards" with the Frontenac Perimeter vid coming in second.
