Out of the deep freeze, into the heat.

The race season is heating up just as the temps get a major bump.  Now that you have crawled out of fetal position after skiing in the -36F temps of the weekend, take a look at the upcoming events (and event changes) that January has in store for you.

This weekend you've got three great options for racing. Rikert is hosting two days of NENSA Eastern Cup action with a classic sprint on Satuday and freestyle 5K/10K on Sunday.  HURT coaches will be on hand to wax world class boards. 

The weekend also features two great NYSSRA events at Saratoga Biathlon club: The Shenendehowa Classic race and the GHN-ADK skiathlon.  Both should be stellar races and details and registration can be found on skireg. 

So....either book a place in Middlebury, VT or head over to Day, NY this weekend.  The racing will be stellar. 

And plan on spending the evening on your ical....

Here is what's comin'

JNQ, JNQ, JNQ, JNQ.....and Mega racing at Garnet Hill.

Lake Placid and Rochester are hosting back-to-back JNQ weekends for juniors looking to make their way to Soho for JN's, Maine for EHSC, or Gore for U16's.  The race will be fast and furious as Mid-A has never looked so deep and stacked with podium potential.  With the Gore cancellations the JN qualification route has changed. Be sure you read here to know what is going on. Again, HURT coaches will have your back for fast boards so if you are a junior looking for support, reach out to us. 

For those less JN inclined.....we have you covered too. 

Saturday, January 20th we are hosting the fan-favorite MEGA-RELAY at Garnet Hill.  Garnet Hill has never been better and new ownership has the place vying for the top destination in the region for great skiing.  If you haven't been there recently, shame. on. you. Make up for it by spending a day at the Mega-Relay.  It is also the race with the race with killer prize packs that will feature Barkeater Chocolate and Nut butters from Vermont Peanut Butter Co. As well as adult-gatorades, snacks, desserts, ski items and gift certificates. 

The HURT Laydz have yet to lose, or be challenged in the Women's division.  Will this be the year?

Saturday, January 27th come on back to Garnet Hill.  Barkeater Chocolates and HURT Nordic are bringing you the Garnet Hill Pursuit Race. Join us on January 27th for a continuous pursuit nordic ski race. The race will be a mass start race beginning with a 4.5K Classic loop followed by a 4.5K freestyle loop. The race will begin at 9:30 from the Ski Lodge. Following the conclusion of the race we there will be a 2.5K Bill Koch Youth Ski League Race. Plan to stay all afternoon for some great skiing and fine refreshments in the Garnet Hill Lodge. Garnet Hill Lodge will provide a host of prizes for race participants and great food items as well.
A 3k Try-it citizens open race is FREE with purchase of a day pass or your season pass. Competitors will Walk away with great prizes from Barkeater Chocolates in North Creek as well as other great prizes from the companies that sponsor and support HURT.

And that takes you to February.

So you will be busy.
