Candy Cane Classic – Wednesday Night Race #3

Events News December 12, 2013

Update: technique has changed to SKATE

We hope to see you next week for our Candy Cane Classic. It promises to be lots of fun. We will provide hot chocolate, candy canes and LED lights for all to wear during the race.

Teams will be posted by Tuesday night so an early registration is greatly appreciated. Please tell others about registering earlier.

(Those who had signed up for the Dec 11th WNR will have their race fees applied to this race. Please advise if you know you are unable to attend the Candy Cane Classic as teams will be made based on the registration list).


The big kids will be skiing 3 x 1.2 km and the smaller kids will be skiing 3 x 800m.

Come dressed in seasonal attire and we will substract 15 seconds from your team time. If the entire team has dressed for the occasion we will deduct an additional 15 secs for team spirit. Yup, thats right up to one minute off if all members are dressed in seasonal attire….santa hat, reindeer antlers, Christmas tree, snowman, etc. I am kinda curious to see if Krista will be sporting her decemBEARD again this year.

The hand off baton will be a candy cane. If your candy cane travels the entire course without breaking, we will substract an additional 60 seconds from your time.

Come join us for the last MEC WED NIGHT RACE of 2013. If you have not done so, please register early.
