Primitive Snowshoe Biathlon
March is boring! If you’re suffering from cabin fever and are up for a challenge, come and match your black powder shooting and snowshoeing skills against some of the toughest competitors in the North East – or – take it a little slower as a woods walk. Those hardy souls participating in the Snowshoe Biathlon will run a one and a half mile course, stopping at each of 5 stations and firing 2 shots; at the 6th and final station, there’s an optional tomahawk throw. Runners or woods walkers using a traditional muzzleloader will complete the course on traditional wood-framed snowshoes. A modern class will be open to shooters using in-line muzzleloaders and modern snowshoes. All shooters must use firearms with open sights.
