Romp to Stomp

STRATTON -- The 11th annual Tubbs Snowshoe Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer, to benefit the Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Stratton Mountain Resort’s Nordic Center. The organizers’ goal for this year’s event -- a choice of a 3 or 5k snowshoe walk or a 3k snowshoes race -- is to break last year’s numbers in both participation (850 Rompers) and money raised ($114,000).

North America’s largest snowshoe series -- there are now seven Romps across the US and two in Canada -- the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Series has raised over $2.2 million for breast cancer research and education since its inception. Vermont Rompers have an incredible passion for the cure and have consistently held the position of highest average fundraising per person of all the Romp events. Stratton Mountain hosted the very first Romp, back in 2003, and has since brought in $423,520.

With its gorgeous course that leads snowshoers of all ages and abilities through incredibly beautiful wooded trails, the Stratton Romp is a not-to-be-missed event for hundreds of folks. A true family-friendly affair, the Romp encourages ‘Lil Rompers’ -- anyone under 13 accompanied by a registered adult -- to get in on the action, too.
