No age limit!  Kids of all ages will be allowed to compete and complete as many laps as their little hearts desire.  Parental supervision is required for each child, under the age of 13, on the course, at all times.    




The racecourse will be marked with RED arrows.  The Maah Daah Hey Trail is a non-motorized travel single-track trail.  All of the grooming is 100% human powered, by dragging weighted sleds with harnesses and snowshoes.  A lot of work goes into the preparation of the trail, that is why we require participants to use either snowshoes, XC skis, or fatbikes with tires 3.8 inches wide or wider while on the racecourse.
