The Atlas Race snowshoes are a great example of a running snowshoe. At 2 pounds 1.3 ounces, or 943 grams, you wont find any lighter running snowshoes on the market. They go so far as to use a superior grade of aluminum to save a few ounces. Atlas also has a spring loaded suspension system that helps make the snowshoes compatible with a runners gait. So a great choice if you want to go running with snowshoes on. Atlas also makes a cheaper, and slightly heavier option called the Atlas Run snowshoes, also ideal for runners.
