BlackHawk-Biathlon: Summer/Fall roller ski series at Ariens

Gregg and I have been working closely with Ariens to bring a fun-filled summer and fall roller ski and running biathlon series. Once a month from June through November, Ariens will be hosting this series. Although we haven’t ironed out all the details yet, there will be multiple race distances for all abilities. For those of you who aren’t roller skiers, there will be a running format as well.

Save these dates

  • Sunday, June 4th
  • Sunday, July 16th
  • Sunday, August 6th
  • Sunday, September 17th
  • Sunday, October 15th
  • Sunday, November 12th

Proposed schedule for each Sunday:

9:30 to 10:00 – Registration and course set up 10:00 to 10:45 – Zero

11:00 – Main races

12:00 – Novice races

Clean up between 1 and 2.

* Times subject to change

More details to come as we get closer to the first race in June.

There will be many opportunities to be involved for parents, family members and friends who will be attending but not racing. We will need volunteers to register racers, help with set up, assist with timing, handle target management, and complete course takedown.

Biathletes, if you can, please stick around after your events and help out with the novice races. Novice racers will greatly appreciate the help from more experienced athletes.

Spread the word, and we look forward to seeing you all this summer!
