Winter's cold and ice doesn't cool down the competitive instict in Traverse City residents and visitors; if anything, they seem to rise to the challenge -- whether it's the cyclists who come from all over the world to compete in the grueling 25-mile Iceman Cometh Challenge bicycle race or the folks who get in shape for their Thanksgiving dinner by running the 5K or five-mile courses in the Downtown Traverse City Turkey Trot.
December brings the Farmland 5K European Style XC Challenge, a winter weather running and biking event on a classic turfgrass course with knee-high barriers that include straw bales, fallen logs, wood fence and stone fence. And by January the events take a decidedly winter turn with the BigFoot Snowshoe Race, the White PIne Stampede (Michigan’s longest and oldest point-to-point cross country ski race) and the North American Vasa Festival of Races, which includes 50k, 27k, 12k, and 6k races on the beautiful Vasa Pathway.
