The World Snowshoe Federation (WSSF), formerly the International Snowshoe Federation (ISF or ISSF), is the world governing body for Snowshoe running.[1]

In 2015, the organization changed its name to the World Snowshoe Federation, so as not to be confused with other existing international federations: ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) and ISF (International Skyrunning Federation).

Mission Statement[edit]

The primary mission of the WSSF is to serve as the international governing body for the Sport of Snowshoe Racing and to assist in the organization and governance of the various national governing bodies for Snowshoe Racing around the World.

World Championships[edit]

The WSSF governs the World Snowshoe Running Championships, which is hosted annually in different locations around the world. The World Snowshoe Running Championships have been held every year, since 2006, except for 2008 and 2019.[2]
