EAGLE-VAIL — The second race in Pedal Power Snowshoe Adventure Series, the Pazzo’s/K.O. Eagle-Vail Holiday 5K/10K, will take place Saturday at 10 a.m. Racers will meet prior to the start at the Eagle-Vail Pavilion, located off of U.S. Highway 6 & 24 in Eagle-Vail.
The Pazzo’s snowshoe event takes place on a woodsy technical course with short, steep ups and fast downs through the trees flanking the Eagle-Vail area. Racers can kick it out as they hit great open stretches on the flats. According to race organizer Bruce Kelly, it is consistently one of the most popular events of the series.
“Each year, this race attracts some of our biggest numbers,” he said. “It’s one of the original courses for the series, and people just love the track. As always, the more people we get, the greater the benefit to the charities we work with in Lake and Eagle counties. That’s been our mission all along … to do anything we can to help.”
The next event in the Winter Race Series will be the Aria Athletic Club Winter Triathlon. That race will take place on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m. at the Colorado Mountain College Timberline Campus in Leadville.
