March 2 Race at Elk River Canceled

Due to a number of conflicts with race schedules (regional, national, and international) and other schedule conflicts, MN Biathlon Twin Cities is not able to gather enough athletes and volunteers to run a safe and enjoyable race on Sunday, March 2.

Thus, we are canceling both the Experienced race and the Novice race.

We are also exploring the possibility of moving the race to the weekend of March 22 and 23. However, we will not be able to make that call until the week before.

There will be a Novice race at Mt. Itasca on Saturday, March 8 (Note change from March 9).

Please keep an eye on our website for more information.

 

Here is an alternative for anyone looking to race down south.

Saturday and SUNDAY, March 1 & 2, 2014 Wisconsin Biathlon Cup Race #5 and #6 will be hosted by Blackhawk Ski Club in Middleton, Wisconsin
