Waterloo Region Nordic Ski Club presents the first race of the 2015 Orion Race Series, The Cookie Race. All competitors will win – a cookie and a hot drink.
We will be using an Interval Start, and the race is free technique.
The distances and courses have been set to enable this year’s beginners to compete in the Sport classes. Experienced skiers will be offered longer and more challenging courses, so the competition will be interesting for all.
The races will be held at Bechtel Park, Waterloo. Registration will start at 1:30 inside the soccer building.
Entry fee is $2 for WRNSC members who are not youth program participants, and $5 for non-members. Race registration is included in the annual program fee for WRNSC youth program participants – and all Bunnyrabbits, Jackrabbits and Magic Rabbits will be preregistered in the race. Please bring cash and exact change.
