Mark your calendars: March 7 at Woodland Trails in Elk River the Macalester Nordic Ski Team will host the As-of-yet-to-be-named (*AOYTBN) race on the wonderful trails at Elk River. The races will be 10k and 20k freestyle events and start at 11 a.m. using the outer trail (10k per lap) at Woodland Trails in Elk River with the Prairie Loop start. Conditions there are excellent, and the trails generally hold snow longer than anywhere else in the area.
Registration, on-site, will be $30, and $15 for high school-and-younger racers. Cash, or checks made payable to "Macalester College." All proceeds from the race will go to the Woodlands Trails grooming crew and to support the Macalester Nordic Ski Team.
We can make no guarantees, but we're ordering up good grooming and, hopefully, sunny skies under a bright, March sun.
