The Red River Nordic Ski & Biathlon Club thanks Mountain Equipment Co-op for generously providing prize packages for the Wednesday Night Race Series. We thank Winnipeg store Manager Ken Berg and Outreach and Learning Coordinator Alisa Birnie for supporting our sport.
We are pleased to announce that Mountain Equipment Coop will once again provide prizes for all category winners. New this year, MEC will also be providing a participation award. Each time an athlete participates, as well as each time a volunteer helps out, they will receive a coupon for a draw for a $100 gift card at the end of the season.
What is the Wednesday Night Races Series?
This is a fun, participation focused race series for skiers of all experience levels. All races take place at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre each Wednesday night at 7:30 from December to March (snow permitting).
