Hot Bed of Snowshoeing! Eau Claire Awarded USSSA's 2015 National Championships

Published: 03/15/2014

Snowshoes are racing on "Clear Water!"

The United States Snowshoe Association, Inc. (USSSA) selected Wisconsin's Eau Claire (means "Clear Waters") as host city for the 15th Annual USSSA Championships to be raced Feb. 27 - March 1, 2015, announced USSSA Sports Director Mark Elmore. Ben Morgan of the Visit Eau Claire Convention & Visitors Bureau spearheaded the winning bid with assistance from Jereme Rauckman of the Chippewa Off Road Bike Association (CORBA). Rauckman will serve as the local race director. Lowes Creek County Park will be the base for the championships. With 7.4 million winter sports enthusiasts living within a 200-mile radius of Eau Claire, Wis., a record turnout may be in store.

Snowshoe Magazine in  a December, 2008, feature article identified North Central Wisconsin as one of the Hot Beds of Snowshoeing in the USA. A triangle best marks the regions with the base in along Highway 29 from Wausau to Eau Claire / Chippewa Falls, which featured Wausau's Stomp the Swamp and Eau Claire's Rumble in the Jungle. Travelling North reaches Rib Lake Snowshoe Adventure, Perky at the Perkinstown Snowshoe Races, The Timm's Hill Trudge, and The Udder Snowshoe Race.
