Mini Marathon and Shen Classic this weekend!
Conditions should be excellent for the Shenendahowa classic and the Great Sacandaga Mini Marathon this weekend.
The weekend starts with the Shenendahowa Classic, a race organized by the Shenendahowa Nordic Club. Open and masters ski 10 k, juniors ski 5 km. Registration is available at skireg.com through 10:00 PM tonight.
Sunday features the Great Sacandaga Mini Marathon, a 30 km skate race. Registration is available at skireg.com through 4:00 PM on Friday. Day of race registration will also be available at a slightly higher fee. This year we are also giving competitors the option of competing in a half distance race (the micro marathon?) Anyone may sign up for the 15 km race, however only juniors will be eligible for awards.
The course is very similar to the one that will be used at the 2010 NYSSRA Champs at the end of February. Expect to see some heavy hitters getting a sneak peak of the course. Mike Wynn is the four time defending champion (he was last beaten in 2004 by Curt Schreiner), will this be the year that someonelse claims the crown?
