Should the January 2021 event be forced to shut down, the event will be rescheduled to May 22, 2021 at the same location (Lake Geneva Canopy Tours in Lake Geneva, WI).
You have the option to transfer to the May event at no charge, or convert your race entry to virtual, where you can complete the event as an individual or a small group onsite at Lake Geneva Canopy Tours on a day of your choosing (ASR will cover your course fee to Lake Geneva Canopy Tours).
If you transfer to the May event, and the May event is cancelled, then all racers will convert to a Virtual event, whereby you can either complete the race onsite at Lake Geneva Canopy Tours as an individual or small group, or on your own turf. For all virtual events, ASR will ship your swag directly to your home at no cost.

The COVID shutdown of our 2020 event has led to a reorganization of our event planning. The ASR event as we've known it (2016-2020) has to be put on hold, however the Abominable challenge of taking mother nature head-on during Winter goes on. The 2021 event will be a Trail based challenge, full of Abominable individual fitness challenges that will push you to the edge of your fitness comfort zone. This brand new event will lessen common touch points, and lead to a safer race event during COVID times, while bringing our fans the Abominable challenge they're used to.
There will be no water station on course, so please plan accordingly. There will be a bottle of water in your racer swag bag, and we will have bottled water at the finish. The course is expected to be 4.5 - 5.5 miles.
15 mile racers may leave their bag in the picnic area. Multi lap racers will have the option to stop after each lap to refuel, as required.
All racers will receive a Free Craft Beer at the finish. Lake Geneva Canopy Tours will have Beer, Wine, Hard Seltzer, and Ciders onsite for purchase. We encourage racers to hang out and socialize with friends for a short period after you race (hour or less) ... we just ask that you please maintain social distance while enjoying beverages with friends.
There will be no food onsite, however Hawk's View Golf Course (offsite parking) is offering racer access to their restaurant and bar, before and after the event. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with their COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Unfortunately spectators are not allowed to attend the 2021 event, due COVID restrictions. However, we are in need of Volunteers. If your friend or family member can volunteer at least one shift (about 4 hours), they can attend the event, and are welcome to stay before and after their shift.
Yes. We are in need of volunteers for the event. The event is 100% outdoors, so please be prepared for the weather and what mother nature may throw at us. We have early AM and late AM shifts. Shifts are about 4 hours each. Volunteers will receive swag for their participation. If you or a friend are considering volunteering for the event, you can sign up for a shift or shifts at AbominableSnowRace.com/Volunteer
Winter in the mid-west has been fickle in the recent years, producing race conditions from -5F and 20" of snow to +55F and mud. Abominable race day conditions are entirely up to Mother Nature.
We will have a "Bag Drop" in a dedicated area of the event. Bag Drop will not be supervised. Racers assume risk for any lost or stolen items.
