Midwest Biathlon Races this coming weekend

Please consider this a reminder that you need to register for the Midwest Biathlon Races at Elk River by Friday noon—online.
https://forms.gle/Jevxmfko2BLGt6Qh6

The race info is linked here. I was at the Novice Clinic on Sunday and the trails were looking great! Thanks so much to Dave Anderson with the Elk River Park Board and his crew of volunteers!! Keep in mind the winter biathlon trails are not the same as the paved ones we use in the summer—so the flow through the range and the character of the trails is entirely different and a lot more challenging!!

The weather forecast also looks real good! Low Fri night at –4F and rising Saturday to 23F, low Saturday night 10F rising to 22F on Sunday.

We have had a lot of athletes with conflicts with the high school races, many of which have been delayed due to cold weather and pushed together. If so, and if you want to only race one of the Midwest series—feel free to do so. Just be sure to let Brian Wray and Zean Baker know along with getting your name into the system.

I have also had some questions about racing classes. Our new system will automatically figure out your age and put you in the appropriate age class per your birthday. If you wish to race up from say <15 to <17 …or down from say MM to Senior Men, please let both Brian and Zean know that so they can override the system.

We have 5 from WI signed up already—and I hope to see most of our biathletes from MN as well!! Remember, this is also a MN Cup event!!
