Jan 3, 2010 – MN Cup 7 – Mass Start Race – Snowflake Nordic, Duluth, MN

Results: Duluth Biathlon Race MN Cup #7 – Jan 3, 2010

1-Hour Delay

Unless the forecast changes drastically, the Snowflake race will be held. The event will be delayed one hour–so an 11:00 zero and 12:00 race. A further delay or shortened course is also possible depending on the conditions.

It will be cold–but not abnormally so. The venue will have a tent set up with a heater for a few people at a time–guess the more that crowd in the warmer it will be!! They will also have some handwarmers and blankets available..but wouldn’t hurt to stock up on more.
