UPDATE Feb 22: As you know, we've had our share of warm weather this past week! However, we have no doubt that we'll be able to pull off a fun race with decent conditions, which will likely be 4 laps around a 2km loop: 2 classic, then 2 freestyle. And please also spread the word to your younger skiers about our Mini Muffin Races - open to all ages and FREE - which occur after the finish of the Pursuit Race.
The longest standing juniors race in Michigan, the Muffin Race will be held at Cross Country Ski Headquarters on Sunday, February 25. The race is a Junior Girls & Boys 8km Pursuit race. Skiers will classic ski the first half of the race then ski freestyle the second half of the race. Registration begins at 9am on Sunday, and we will shoot for a 10:30am start. This is a Michigan Cup Junior Race. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in the girls and boys races.
