Training Cancelled Tuesday February 7

The temperature is below -20C and may reach -19C at the height of the day…but promises to be -22C at the time we are to start tonight (at 6:30). Therefore we are cancelling the formal practice for tonight.

But don’t be discouraged! It’s still ok to get outside for a brisk walk, or a ski, with a friend or two! Bundle up and enjoy the freshness 🙂

A reminder that here is The FAST Trax Classic Night Race tomorrow, Wednesday February 8th. The action starts at 7:00 pm with registration from 6:00 pm. The entry fee is:

  • 10km        $10
  • 5km          $5
  • 2.5km      $2

This is a classic event and the distances are:

  • 10km (3 x 3.3km) with start at 7:00 pm
  • 5km (2 x 2.5km) with start at 7:02 pm
  • 2.5km (1 x 2.5km) with start at 7:03 pm

This would be a great tune-up for the Birkie 🙂
