Join Clean Lakes Alliance for our first annual Frozen Assets Snowshoe Run on iconic Lake Mendota!

Choose between a 10k and a 5k race, starting and ending at The Edgewater. Participants will run across the ice on iconic Lake Mendota and pass by downtown Madison and the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Medals will be awarded to our top finishers. Best of all, your registration supports work to protect and improve water quality in our lakes!

First time competitors can select the "novice" division. Tickets are transferrable and non-refundable. We look forward to seeing you out on the ice!
