Oct Biathlon Race- 10.21 Elk River—Biathlon on roller skis- Sunday morning
Please note the above schedule is subject to changes. Normally about 2 weeks ahead of the event an “Invitation” will be sent out by email. Please respond to those so the organizers can plan for the appropriate number of participants.
The Camps are designed for younger athletes—generally age 13-25. Those older are invited to all the races, and to participate in the camps as coaches or coach/parents.
Here are the results of all the testing, time trials, hill climbs, and the race last week and Sunday. They are on a spread sheet also including old results and some athletes who are no longer competing. If you pick up your name on the left and track across, you should be able to map your progress over the years. Each event is color coded on the top with the same color each year.
Enjoy! It is a long long journey!!
