Our mission is to enjoy winter one step at a time!
The Bravehearted Snowshoe Series is a free participation, volunteer run group of snowshoe enthusiasts.
We exist solely to promote participation in snowshoe racing/walking to people of all ages and abilities and want you to join us!
While snowshoeing is its own reward, our members also qualify for end of season series awards and prize drawings!

Jim not only organized the series and ran many races, he hand
