Bigfoot Glowshoe logo 2019Bigfoot 2019 Registration Open!

Michigan Tech Student Health and Wellness and the Outdoor Adventure Program are pleased to bring you the Bigfoot Glowshoe event for the second year.  The 22nd annual Bigfoot event will be held on Thursday, February 7 at the Michigan Tech Trails from 7:00-10:00 pm.  This is a recreational snowshoe event for both beginners and avid enthusiast, children and adults of all ages.  It isn't a race, rather a great opportunity to get outdoors, get active and enjoy the winter weather with friends and family.  Snowshoe the 2k trails at your own pace and enjoy the lights of the path and others out taking part in the event.

Held in conjunction with Winter Carnival, this event promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for our community.  The rate for students and children under 12 is $5, and $15 for adults and community members (Bigfoot shirts available for an additional $5 online through the registration process).  Students will be asked to show their student id at check-in. If shirts were ordered during pre-registration, they will be available for pick up at the event. For questions, contact Student Health and Wellness at 906-487-2560 or
