Snowshoe cocktail races return to Camp Richardson

Snowshoe cocktail races return to the Beacon Bar & Grill this weekend. The second of four races this winter takes place at the Camp Richardson bar and restaurant this Saturday.

"Can you run in snowshoes? Can you run and carry a tray full of drinks in snowshoes? How about just watching people try?… "Racers run with cocktail trays in hand through obstacles and up and down the beach. The winner is the fastest and cleanest at the finish," according to a press release for the event. "Spilling drinks is not a winning strategy."

Prizes, as well as food and drink specials, will be offered at the event. Dale Pone will provide live music. Snowshoes will be provided, and all levels are welcome. Sign-ups take place between 5-7 p.m., with the race starting at 7 p.m.

Coronado Brewing Company is February's main sponsor. Prize sponsors for the annual races also include Southern Wine & Spirits, Deschutes Brewing Company, Green Flash Brewing Company and Alpine Brewing Company, Sierra at Tahoe, New Belgium Brewing Company, The Landing Resort & Spa, Sports LTD, Sunsational Tans, Shoreline of Tahoe, Blue Dog Gourmet Pizza, Coldwater Brewery & Grill, Woodchart Enterprises, Action Watersports, Round Hill Pines Beach Resort and Camp Richardson.

Snowshoe cocktail races will also take place at the Beacon March 19 and April 16.

The restaurant is located at 1900 Jameson Beach Road in South Lake Tahoe.
