MI Cup Sprints: Champagne Edition

Wed, Feb  4, 2009 - By Mike Muha

Date: Sun, Feb 8, 2009
Time: 10:00 AM
Where: Hanson Hills, Grayling, MI

A Michigan Cup Race! Michigan's only sprint race - race a 1 kilometer course in elimination heats. See how fast you really are! This is a freestyle race.

Based on feedback from the last two years, we're dividing the competition into two sections. We'll run all the junior male, junior female and senior women events in the morning, and run the senior men in the afternoon.

We are looking for volunteers to help with timing. Volunteers get a free race entry - you have to work either the morning or the afternoon. Not racing? We'll make sure you get some other prize. Contact Mike Muha at 248-535-9351 or mike.muha@nordicskiracer.com to volunteer.
