A fun day of racing for all skate and classic XC skiers of all ages, hosted by the Fernie Nordic Society.
Don't let the 'R' word put you off. This is a fun day of racing for all skate and classic cross-country skiers of all ages at the beautiful Fernie Golf Club Trails.
Skiers of all levels are invited to participate in this event. The overall theme will be FUN and CHEERS for all. Although this event has a four-letter word in its name, the Nordic Society wishes to welcome all participants of all abilities to the event, not just ‘racers.’
Participants will compete within their chosen categories and be rewarded after with a hot chili lunch in the clubhouse.
Registration, bib pick-up and warm-up will start at 9:30 a.m. The races will begin promptly at 10:40 a.m. following a quick racer meeting. The registration cost includes a daily trail pass and the lunch social following the race.
