Huge thanks to everyone who participated in our Lockdown Sprint Challenge, a part of Cross Country Ski Ontario’s Covid Cup series! We had 51 competitors across all age groups, representing 20% of our club membership. Skiers prevailed over challenging conditions and posted some very competitive times.
Younger age groups skied a single lap and recorded their time. Older age groups skied the course four times within one hour and submitted their times in order. These times were used to set up virtual heats for a sprint race! This lead to lots of strategy with pacing and rest.
