The 20km race course had some of the best grooming ever: Firm deep tracks, firm skate lane with a softer cover, fast but controllable downhills. The course couldn't have been any better.

We are anticipating a large field for the 20K race this weekend since we had to cancel the 50K event. To alleviate the congestion on the course, the committee has decided to stagger the start times for the 20K.

Despite our recent snowfall, the 50K trail was still not good enough in spots to run the full 50. However, the 20K and 10K trails are in excellent shape, so those two races are on as scheduled. All racers registered for the 50K will now be in the 20K.
