The Frozen Snot is a 8.3 or 13.5-mile trek, trail run, hike, adventure race, or whatever you want to call it. We consider it more of a "mountain epic", as not much of the course is all that runable. This is NOT a beginner friendly event. The course is very technical, has A LOT of elevation change over very few miles. There are boulder fields, steep descents, and Mother Nature could give us any combination of snow/ice/mud she desires (depending on how sadistic she's feeling). The day could be freezing rain on top of a foot of snow or it might just be a bracing, bright winter's day out on a hard and fast rocky surface. We have selected the worst that Bald Eagle Mountain provides and scheduled it during what is usually the coldest week of the year. A fair amount of the route is on established trails used by the Boulder Beast. Some of the route, though, travels ground that is really only passable (except to the diehard bushwacker) in the winter. The course will be well-marked, but not "manicured." Expect four stream crossings which may, or may not, be frozen. We offer a "long course" (about 13.5 miles) and a "short course" of about 8.3 miles. Choose your own adventure when you register.
