AMHERST - While many have chosen to take to the walking track inside the Stadium during winter, brothers Doug and Carl McManaman are strapping on snowshoes and hitting Dickey Park.
These shoes were made for walking
Brothers plan to travel 100 miles around Dickey Park on snowshoes

Doug, Thanks for the suggestion. I was already considering it after reading the article, I never thought about how much more exercise would come from snowshoeing compared to regular walking and since Dickey Park is practically in my back yard, don't be surprised if you see an unfamiliar set of tracks as you continue your mission. Now, to find a decent pair of showshoes!
Best of luck, guys!

ummm...something wrong with the math there! 2.5 miles per lap x 250 laps = 625 miles, I think you mean 2.5 laps equals 1 mile, which makes more sense because the trail is not that big.

The Number Police should arrange a meeting with the Spelling Police because they appear to have spelled the reporter's name wrong.

ms tanish should check her numbers i have been up to the new walking trail and it might be .5 of a km all around but it sure isnt the 4km she suggests here unless we are talking about a different Dickey Park.
