If you are a coach this is one of those races that will turn your young athletes on to the fun of racing.
Last year we did a 500m sprint race in a base ball diamond, nobody thought it could be done but it was super cool under the lights. Click this link and this link for cool videos of last years sprints
This year we have expanded to 750m of racing fun and we have left the base ball diamond behind for a much larger playing field. Our grooming team has been hard at work making a new course that is going to be super awesome and fun to race. You will not want to miss this event.
We have also lowered entry age to kids born in 2006 and older so that more of our young skiers can enjoy this super fun race.
Make sure that you register before Feb 6th as early bird pricing ends and you will have to pay more for this amazing racing experience.
This race is a partnership with the Gatineau Loppet for more information on the race you can click this link to their website where there is a detailed race notice.
We are also looking for more volunteers so if you are interested in joining our team please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be happy to find you a role.
With around 750 individual participants, this is the biggest Easterns thus far! We had skiers from all across the country: Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Vancouver, New Brunswick, Alberta, Manitoba, and many from Quebec and Ontario. All we need is a couple of skiers from Saskatchewan and PEI and we will have covered the country.
The three days of racing was intense and cold - and had lots of skiers in all categories with great races throughout. Check out Cecski.ca for photos of the event and zone4.ca for results.
