Canterbury Shaker Village is proud to offer a variety of outdoor recreational activities year round, throughout our 700 acres of trails, pathways, and ponds. From snowshoe races to cross country runs and walks, there is something for everyone. 

Coming Winter 2022:

N.H. Snow or No, We Go Trail Series 2022

Presented by Northeast Delta Dental


Snow or no, we go is pre-registration only and limited to 75 participants. A series of six trail races (2-4 miles, more or less) All races are run on loops. You may choose to run one or two loops. We urge you to run on snowshoes when/if conditions are acceptable. No race will be cancelled or postponed for lack of snow. We will simply run in trail shoes, micro spikes, whatever works on that day. You may race independently or as a team member. You must have at least three athletes finish a race to score as a team. All proceeds benefit the Village.
