Winter fun in Nova Scotia

About The Big Chill

February 27, 2021

Registration is now open for 5k, 15k and 30k distances! 

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. You can register and fundraise as an individual or 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 can be completed by a 2-person team. The 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.

Please indicate your plan during registration.

Start times

30km – 8 am
15km – 10 am

Location: 807 Twin Oaks Road, outside Middleton 

Please also plan to attend the safety meeting and dinner the night before (February 26) at 6:30pm, hosted by the planning committee and students of Lawrencetown Education Centre at the school located at 10 Middle Rd, Lawrencetown, NS.
