MN Cup #5 – Elk River – Sunday, February 19th, 2023 – RESULTS

Presented by Minnesota Biathlon

Sunday, February 19th, 2023

We have had good news from the groomers at Woodland Trails! They managed to break up the crust and will be doing a lot more on Saturday as the weather warms up. We will have skiable conditions, with the final decision on courses to be made on Saturday. The weather forecasts look really good!! 

The race will be a 7.5km Relay Format with 15-sec interval starts, hopefully on an exact 2.5 km course. Age classes <13 will do a 4.5km event. 

Please jump in and join us for the last race of the winter season in the Twin Cities area—and stick around and help with the Novice event following right behind the race and get the entry fee reduced to zero!! We have 24 or 25 Novices signed up—and are looking forward to greeting some new faces, encouraging newcomers to try our great sport, and generating the continuance of our MN Biathlon growth!!

We are approaching 20 signups for the experienced race event—and with the MN State Meet completed today—we should pick up a number of new entries before tomorrow evening! 

The deadline for signup is 9:00 Pm tomorrow [Friday] to allow us time to get the timing set up with start lists.

Hope to see you there!!
