About The Big Chill

Thank you for another great BIG CHILL

Starting point: 807 Twin Oaks Road, outside Middleton 

Register as an individual or a team!

The BIG CHILL is an important fundraiser for the Lawrencetown Education Centre and Nova Scotia’s at-risk youth. The BIG CHILL is a snowshoe marathon set in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. There are three challenging course lengths: 5km, 15km & 30km and new this year, you can register and fundraise as a team!

The team options are designed for a group of participants to challenge themselves in our 15km or 30km distances – either in a relay or group format. The 15km course will be split into two parts. Competitors will have the option of completing one of the two parts of the loop as a relay OR to complete the course together. The 30km course can be completed as a 2 or 4-person team. With the 2-person format, each person would complete one 15km loop. The 4-person team will each complete one quarter of the course. Any group choosing to complete the full 30km as a team can do so.

Start times

30km – 8 am
15km – 10 am
5km – 2 pm

Location: 807 Twin Oaks Road, outside Middleton 

Please also plan to attend the safety meeting and dinner the night before (February 28) at 6:30pm, hosted by the planning committee and students of Lawrencetown Education Centre at the school located at 10 Middle Rd, Lawrencetown, NS.
