Muffin Race skiers celebrate the warmth

Michigan Cup: Muffin Race

Mon, Mar  1, 2010 - By Mike Muha

It was perfect conditions for the 18th Annual Muffin Race at the Cross Country Ski Headquarters in Roscommon, MI on Sunday February 28, 2010. Temperatures were in the mid-30's and the sun played hide-and-seek with the skiers. Celebrating the "warm" weather, several male racers skied in swim suits only. Some female racers, in the spirit of spring skiing, wore their swimming suits over their racing suits!

The Muffin Race was divided into two races: the Senior Muffin for Michigan Cup racers and the Junior Muffin for skies 10 and under.

Senior Muffin Pursuit

The Senior Muffin consisted of a pursuit race. Racers first skied a 4K Classic course, quickly transitioned to freestyle equipment, then skied the same 4K loop again. The loop was the some course used by the Michigan Cup Relay: the combination of the Rolling Hills Trail and the Partridge Alley.

In the Girls 11-13 age group, Heidi Schwab finished first in 39:02, with Jane Lively taking second in 43:43. Keefer Edwards was the fast boy in the age class, easily beating the rest of the field in 32:19. Second was Even Scheiern and 37:40 and Lars Hallstrom in 38:39.

In the 14-19 age class, Maria Frick finished first in 29:30 - the 6th fastest time among girls and boys in the Senior Muffin. Jane Hinsenkamp was second and Kaylee VanDomellen third with times of 33:50 and 34:16.

Ross Williams had a close race with Ryan Harris. Williams won in 25:12, just 26 seconds ahead of Harris's time of 25:38. Gunnar Brammer was third in 27:16.
