The first Snow Trek was at the 2015 Snow Conference, although it hadn’t picked up the name “Snow Trek” yet, when our Michigan Chapter hosts hired a shuttle on Monday evening to take attendees around to the most popular brew pubs in Grand Rapids. Last year in Des Moines, the Iowa Chapter turned it up a notch with the first official Snow Trek, incorporating sponsorships and drink tickets into the fun. Not to disappoint, this year the Indiana Chapter is planning another special Snow Trek evening.
Join our Indiana Chapter hosts for this unique after-hours networking opportunity that will take Full Attendee registrants to local Indy pubs and distilleries for an evening of fun with colleagues from all over the country. Attendees will receive a booklet with one drink ticket for each stop on the route. It will also contain important information about our sponsoring partners and the pubs and distilleries you will visit. Don’t want to walk? Don’t fret! Free transportation will shuttle attendees to and from the Indiana Convention Center, which is close to all the official Snow Conference hotels.

Commonly known as the Greatest Spectacle in Running, participants run alongside 25,000 peers in one of the largest half-marathons in the country. Runners will start and end the race in downtown Indianapolis, but along the way they'll get to run a 2.5 mile lap at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, hear from 70 different entertainment acts along the race route to keep motivated, and refuel at 15 Pit Stations. After it's all over, there's a free Post Race Party featuring bands, food, a beer garden, and much more. APWA Snow Conference attendees can register at a discounted rate using the link below.
