After long deliberation, the Wed Nite race committee has decided to not hold the Wed Nite race on Wed Jan 7th. (this week) With the raw temperature being below -20C we are concerned about the safety and well being of our racers. There is so much new research about strenuous exercise in extreme cold weather and the long term affect on athletes and their lungs.
As we saw a possible break in the weather on Thursday, we are going to hold this week’s race on Thursday.
An email will be sent to all those who were registered for the race to advise them of the date change.
The Zone 4 site has been re-opened for registration.
As we know Winnipeggers love a good bargain .. so we have done two things.
1. Anyone who has yet to sign up for the complete race season can do so for the new low fee of $35 for the remainder of season. With ten races left on the calendar that comes out to $3.50 per race. Athletes can still register one race at a time for $5 per race.
2. Anyone who has already signed up for the entire season will be receiving a password by email tonight that they can use when registering for RRNSB races and upon checkout will receive a $10 discount. This password can be used at either the Falcon Combined this weekend or at Provincials on the Louis Riel weekend.
We greatly appreciate your assistance in passing this message to your groups.
