Welcome to the Atlas Mad Trapper Snowshoe Series, just 40 minutes north of Ottawa near Wakefield, Quebec.
This is eastern Canada’s oldest, biggest and best winter snowshoe series.
This year we plan on offering 4 races. This is the fifth year we’re attempting to offer a race in December. Previous years have taught us that we generally have a lot of snow in early and mid December, but then it frequently melts around the new year. So let’s see if Mother Nature cooperates with us this season:
December 7, 2013 – The “Flatter” Course, 10am start
January 4, 2014 – The Hilly Course, 10am start
January 25, 2014 – BUSHTUKAH NIGHT RACE and i2P Fundraiser: 6:30PM START
February 22, 2014 – The Champs, EVERYBODY Welcome, no “qualifier” required, 10am start

Each event will continue to offer the Solefit 5k or Atlas 10k options. Prizing will once again be abundant and be awarded more randomly than based on performance results.
This year the Mad Trapper Series Champions (both 5 and 10k) will be awarded based on a points system of an individuals top 3 race finishes. Competitors vying for the title need not compete in all 4 races, but they may, and their top 3 results will be calculated.
All races take place at “the Ark” in Denholm, Quebec (directions can be found by clicking on the “Directions” button on the navigation bar on the left of the page). All races begin at 10am and will be followed by a feast (chili or lasagna, hot soup, cookies, chips, hot chocolate and more).
This year we hope to post all race results on this website within 24 hours
