Use Snowshoeing for Winter Running Training

Last Saturday, about 50 runners gathered on a crisp morning for a snowshoe race at Frontenac Provincial Park not far from Kingston, Ontario. Derrick Spafford, the owner of Spafford Health and Adventure put on the event. It's one of several he organizes in eastern Ontario.

Spafford says more and more runners are strapping on snowshoes as part of their running training in the winter. Spafford is an experienced ultra-runner who is sponsored by La Sportiva. He's also an avid believer in the benefits of snowshoeing.

A winter of snowshoe running is a great way of building strength, and it's almost like doing a whole hill phase, Spafford says. So you're developing that much more strength, that you're going to be able to carry over in your spring and summer season.

John McAlister agrees. He's a Salomon sponsored athlete and he came out to the Frontenac race. McAlister won the 6k event. It definitely strengthens your legs, says McAlister. He adds: it's also low impact, so even though you're getting a really strong workout, and your heart rate is getting up, you're not really pounding your body in the same way that doing a long run, or a hilly run would be on roads.

Other runners at the event say snowshoeing also provides a good mental boost. They say being outside with other runners and in nature breaks through the isolation that can accompany winter. John Warner, a fit and dedicated runner from Cornwall, Ont. says it's nice to get a break from the ultra-competitive running scene and have a little more fun. But Warner says the benefits of snowshoeing for running training are unmistakeable. It's very much the same, says Warner. The only thing is when you finish your recovery is five minutes instead of two days ... so it's like you feel great right after.

To get you going with what you need to know to get out snowshoes, we've put together this short video with tips from Derrick Spafford and other runners. If you've used snowshoeing as part of your winter training, let us know what you like about it and tips you may have for other runners by posting a note on our Facebook page.

XCC Highlights from Snowshoe | UCI MTB World Cup 2019

► Watch the UCI MTB World Cup LIVE on Red Bull TV -

Snowshoe, USA - neutral territory for the cross-country title races this weekend. With a punchy track consisting of roots, rocks, mud and slick grass, cross-country racers used Friday's XCC race as a great way to familiarise themselves with a fresh course.

Taking her second win of the season, Jenny Rissveds laid down an incredible race, taking action and making her attack at the opportune time to widen the gap and sustain it to the line for first place.
Over in the men's race, a battle at the front of the leading group saw Nino Schurter pull away and take his first XC Short Track win, also securing himself enough points to take the overall World Cup title, ahead of Sunday's XCO final.

Elite Women's XCC Snowshoe results:
1. Jenny Rissveds +25:07
2. Pauline Ferrand-Prevot +0:08
3. Kate COURTNEY +0:11

Health Check: benefits of Snowshoeing

Mother Nature's beauty is visible year 'round. Yet when the temperature dips, people have a tendency to avoid the elements.
Snowshoeing, however, is one way to reverse that mindset.
It's an excellent way to get out in the winter time, it's great exercise, said Vicky Wachtler, an interpretive naturalist with the Three Rivers Park District. [Snowshoeing] adds a little bit more of a workout than just hiking. They usually say you can burn, walking on a packed trail, about 500 calories.
At the Eastman Nature Center in Dayton, Wachtler gave a reporter from 12 News a crash course in snowshoeing.
You know it is pretty much a full body workout, she said. It is good on your legs, but if you do add those poles, then you're adding arms and back workout too.
Not only is it a good workout, but it gives people a chance to explore the outdoors in a way they couldn't other times of the year.
Sometimes on snowshoes you can get off trail or go into places that maybe you wouldn't be able to go in the summertime, hike out onto a lake, check out a lake, that type of thing, she said.
At Park Brook Elementary in Brooklyn Park, being active outside in the winter is a message teachers try to instill in students at a young age.
We live in Minnesota, if we embrace the seasons, we get to choose the attitude that we want, said Principal Scott Taylor. It's great for your mood, it's great for the academic success, and also just for our bodies.
Four times a week, students take part in snowshoe boot camp, where they strap on snowshoes and get moving after school. The program introduces kids to an activity they may have never tried, and lays the foundation for something they can do later in life to fight the winter blues.
It's an activity even a news reporter can handle.
Cause really, all you have to do is, once you get the snowshoes on your feet, all of you have to do is walk, Wachtler said. It's as simple as that.
Officials from Three Rivers Park District say if you want to go snowshoeing, all you need is warm clothes, sturdy boots, and a sense of adventure. The cost to rent snowshoes is $5.
