The Woodstock Sweetheart Race is on! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to give this race a try! Costumes, sparkles and fairy wings are encouraged and might actually make you faster. See flier for more information.
The Woodstock nordic club has partnered up with Suicide Six so that the nordic community can host a simple, low-key, fun race tomorrow on a 1/2 kilometer man-made loop. It will be the perfect event to enjoy winter on a beautiful day and hop into a fun race without even leaving the Upper Valley. Registration will be on-site tomorrow and begins at 9:30. $10/racer but Lollipoppers are FREE. Lollipoppers (untimed racers, up to grade 2) go off at 11:00 with the rest of the timed age groups (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8) heading out afterwards. Skiers can ski the course before 11, but there will be no skiing besides the races after 11. Let us know you will be coming by putting your name on our Race Planning Doc here.
As a reminder, next weekend is the Bill Koch League Festival at Great Glen Trails (at the bottom of Mt. Washington and with the best views ever of the northern Presidential Range). The Festival is a wonderful gathering of youth skiers and their families from throughout New England and upstate New York. Some kids go for the racing, some kids go for the plethora of non-racing events (tours, hot cocoa, ski games…). Everyone goes for the fun and a chance to celebrate being outside and active in a northern New England winter. And of course there is just the excitement of hanging around with all your friends on an overnight trip with many other Upper Valley families. Please be sure to note that the final registration deadline is this SATURDAY at 5:00 PM. Do not forget that we are in the CEVT (Central Vermont) District. Register here.
