The 35th annual Snowflake Derby has been scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, January 12, on the campus of the University of Southern Indiana, and features two races this year.

Entry fees for pre-registered runners are $15 for one race or $20 for both races, while race-day registration will be $20 for one race or $25 for both races. Race-day registration and packet pickup will run from 9:30 to 11:45 a.m. at the Recreation, Fitness and Wellness Center (RFWC).

All pre-registered entries must be received before January 7 and pre-registered runners will receive a Snowflake Derby fleece running cap on race day. Running caps will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. If supplies run out, the caps will be mailed to all participants as soon as possible. Food and drink will be available following the race in the RFWC.

This year's 8k course will be run entirely off road and consists of dirt, grass, and crushed stone trails. Challenges include hills, hay bales, log jumps, creek crossings, and whatever else Mother Nature has in store.

The 4k race features a fast, scenic paved course utilizing the USI-Burdette Trail.

Awards go to the top three finishers overall, plus the top two male and female finishers in the following age groups: 15–under, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-over.

All proceeds from the events benefit the USI cross country and track and field programs. For more information, contact USI Head Cross Country/Track and Field Coach Mike Hillyard at 812/465-1232 or by email at mhillyar@usi.edu.
