Snowman's Run 2021

Bring your cowboy hat and boots 'cause

We are Eastbound and Down from Texas

 

Thank you for registering for the 2021 Snowman's Run!  We're excited to have you join us and have done our best to put together a fun, memorable agenda while at the same time honoring our veterans for their service and sacrifices.

For your convenience, we have contacted hotels along the route and have negotiated rates and room blocks.  We went through an exhaustive process to find suitable properties in each location which offered great value at the lowest possible cost--and if there is a silver lining to the impact of the pandemic, we were able to get better rates in several places this year.  NOTE:  Although it is not "peak season" in many places, rooms are limited and it is advisable to book rooms as soon as possible.  BE SURE to use the group rate code in order to get the negotiated rates.

If you are a Hilton Honors member (for the Hampton Inns and Doubletree on our route), be sure to include that in your reservation so you can get your points.

Please note, you are responsible for your own reservations.  You are also responsible for all room charges as well as any early departure charges and cancellation fees if applicable (be sure you also understand the cancellation policies and costs at each hotel as they do vary from one property to the next).  You are also responsible for understanding local laws and ordinances and abiding by them accordingly. 

Given we had completed all of the planning for Snowman's Run 2020 but had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to use the itinerary from 2020 as a blueprint for 2021.  We made a few changes, most notably we will be using Fredericksburg, TX and Biloxi, MS as anchor points for the beginning and end of the 'Run respectively.  This accounts for the multiple-day stays at each location and the accommodations for early arrivals.
