Visit Eau Claire, CORBA, and the Eau Claire Sports Commission have announced that Eau Claire will host the 2022 National Snowshoe Championships.
Earlier this year, Eau Claire was chosen as the site for 2021 National Snowshoe Championships by the U.S. National Snowshoe Championships. The event, which has been delayed from 2021 to 2022 due to the impact of COVID-19, will still take place in Eau Claire at Lowes Creek County Park. A date for the event has yet to be formally announced.
The event is comprised of Junior National 5km championships, Senior Men’s and Women’s 10km championships, Kid’s Kilo Run/Walk, Citizen’s 5km Run/Walk, and a 4-by-2.5km Snowshoe Team Relay event. Visit Eau Claire estimates that the 2022 event will have an economic impact of $81,000 for the City of Eau Claire.
“We look forward to welcoming back all of the competitors to Eau Claire in 2022,” said Jason Krueger, Visit Eau Claire’s sports sales manager. “We truly appreciate the support from our partners, United States Snowshoe Association & CORBA, and are very grateful that this exciting event will be returning to our city!”
The U.S. National Snowshoe Championships were previously held in Eau Claire in 2015.
