What time is it? It’s Stone Wall time!

Registration is open, and we are ready and excited for January 26, 2020.

Celebrating its 10th year, the Stone Wall Snowshoe event is the NOT TO MISS winter event, right here on the Tug Hill.

Again this year, you’ll have your choice of the 5K distance, which has just the right amount of challenge, or the unforgettable 10K course, (slightly longer) which is waiting to test your limits. Relentless is a popular description. snowshoe uphill climb

Mass Start at 10:30AM. 150+ snowshoe runners will blast off the start line (or casually walk) as they make their way across some of the best snowshoe terrain around, running together for the first 2 miles, before the 5K and 10K runners separate.

‘Shoe for your favorite Charity! Do you have a charity you’d like to make a donation to? Want to support your local animal shelter, or the Alzheimer’s Foundation? Rally your friends, family members, neighbors, coworkers, whomever you can find, and get them to be a part of your team. They can walk! Team’s of 10 or more will earn $15 each, half of the reg fee, and we will write a check to the charity of your choice. Get 12 people, we’ll write a check for $160. The bigger your team, the bigger the donation. Here’s the best part….the team with the most participants will get a bonus $1,000 for their charity.

We have plenty of loaner snowshoes available, courtesy of DION Snowshoes.


We’re hoping to once again blast records in participation for this year’s race, so bring along friends and family. Post-race will feature complimentary food and awards, and a drawing for a new pair of DION Racing Snowshoes.

Make it a weekend of fun in Winona. Go out for more snowshoeing, or mix it up, and experience incredibly well-groomed winter trails ready for your fat bike, or Nordic skis.  10,000 acres of winter fun awaits. If you spend the weekend, check out our lodging sponsor, Tailwater Lodge, where you will receive discounted rates just for being a Winona user.
