2018 race season is just around the corner!!

With Hay Day’s fast approaching it is obvious the 2018 race season is just around the corner!!

The 2018 Cross Country season this year will start out at Lakewood’s Resort in Cable, WI Jan 6 & 7 and then proceeds to Phillips, WI Jan 27/28. The season will once again finish on the hills of Blackjack and Lutsen Ski Resort, we are still working on securing some new venues for the middle of the season but with the past two low snow seasons we want to find a venue that snow should not be an issue for a great event.

Currently the schedule is:

  • Jan 6/7 Cable, WI
  • Jan 27/28 Phillips, WI

  • Apr 7/8 Bessemer, MI

  • Apr 28/29 Lutsen, MN

 

We are still working on at least one more event to fill in the middle of the season and hope to have that very soon.

There are just a few changes for the 2018 season and the first one is to help save our members some money in their race budget; the 2018 Early Bird season membership price has been slashed to $100!
