Kanata Pretzel Sprints
Sunday, February 24, 2008
Come out and see how much fun a cross-country sprint race can be! The Kanata XC Ski Club is hosting its first race ever. All skiers are welcome and no previous race experience is required. There will be two sprint courses, a 250 metre loop for the younger skiers and a 500 metre course for the older ones. Both events are freestyle (classic or skating). All Jackrabbit levels are welcome, as well as those who are already racing. Sprint race participants are guaranteed at least two races. A special fun park will be set up for the Bunnyrabbits. All ‘Kanata Pretzel Sprints 2008’ participants will be awarded a delicious pretzel prize!
