So what is The Frozen Snot?  It is a 12.5-mile trek, trail run, hike, adventure race or what ever you want to call it.  Frankly, for 2014 we are morphing more toward an adventure race.  We have selected the worst that Bald Eagle Mountain provides and scheduled it during what is usually the coldest week of the year.  It is aimed at the hardcore trail runner and hardy hiker.  By hardcore we don't mean "elite" or necessarily fast, but rather a person that is ready for the most daunting 12.5-mile course we could devise in these parts.  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.

A fair amount of the route is on established trails used by the Megatransect and Eagle Trek.  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.   Check out the Course page for more details.
