New Courses and Start Times for Keskinada classic races

The rain and flash freezing has turned the Gatineau Park into a bit of a skating rink! Groomers should be able to break up most of the ice, but to ensure the best possible course the groomers are going to focus their efforts on a 25 km loop in the lower part of the park.

29 km: The start and first 15 km (approx) is the same, but after you climb the back of Pinks (trail 15) and trail 35, you'll turn left on the parkway and head back down Pinks. I'm pretty sure (but not positive - check!) that you don't cut in at trail 26 to finish, but have to go all the way down to Boul St Raymond overpass and onto trail 5 like you did at the beginning. The new course is approx. 25 km.

53 km: No Penguin or Burma! You get to do the 25km loop (described above) twice.

NEW START TIME: 10 AM

START TIMES FOR 16KM AND 5KM ALSO DELAYED (2:30??).
