Thursday Night Winter Racing

Cole's Woods : 40 Parkview Ave, Queensbury, NY  12804

Head to the Cole's Woods Trails, located in Glens Falls and Queensbury, NY, on Thursdays ( Jan. 21 and 28 and Feb. 4 and 11) starting 6 to 6:30 p.m. for socially distanced winter racing to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the trail system!

Enjoy the beautiful winter nights with lighted trails on your cross country skis or snowshoes.

Read details below.

2 km (1 lap) or 4 km (2 laps)   
(We will be utilizing the original lighted course created in 1971 for the International Ski Tour.)

The Start/Finish for the races will be on the field behind Inside Edge.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, it will be a rolling (individual) start.  This means that racers will start individually in order to maintain social distancing.  Starts will take place between 6:00 - 6:30 pm.  

Free of charge.  Each racer must sign a liability waiver in order to participate. 

We will adhere to all public health recommendations, and determine each week whether racing will occur.  This decision will be based on current health guidelines and snow conditions.  Once racers complete their race, they must leave the start/finish area.  They may continue to ski on trails not used for racing.

Social distancing and masking will be required of all but the participants while racing.   
Weekly race determinations will be posted on the Friends of Cole’s Woods Facebook page, and on our website no later than the Wednesday prior to that week’s race.
