Special Olympics Snowshoe Racing helps athletes enhance their fitness level during the winter months through a full body workout. Snowshoeing is relatively easy to learn because of its natural movement and it also helps build strength while offering a fun and challenging workout.

Athletes are allowed to compete in a maximum of three events total that could include two individual events and one relay or one individual event and two relay. Athletes of all age and skill levels can successfully compete in snowshoeing. For added balance, some athletes use ski poles. Athletes are grouped in divisions according to their ability level, age and gender.
