Race #1: May 17th, 2017 (register 6:15-6:45pm, start 7:00pm)
Where: Registration, start and finish is at the Mt MacPherson Nordic Lodge parking lot which is located 7 km south on Hwy 23S. There is plenty of parking at the start/finish. An outhouse and water are available. If you have a number plate from previous races feel free to bring it.
Cost: $5 for RCA members. Note that you must be an RCA member to take part. Please bring proof of RCA membership to the event. You can also purchase your RCA membership ($30) at registration – just come a little earlier to ensure you have time to fill out the necessary forms. Exact change is appreciated.
Course: The race will use our standard two lap format. Each lap will use sections of the Nordic trails, a portion of Black Forest and most of the Stimulus loop. Please see the map for details of the exact route. Each lap is approximately 7.7km with 200m of climbing. Expect the fastest riders to complete the race in 50 minutes. You are welcome to do only one lap (or 1.5 laps) but you will be ranked behind anyone who does more laps than you.
