Race Notice: 2007 Boxing Day Burnoff
By:  Team XCOttawa   (2007/12/24)


Conditions are prime this year for a mind-blowing Burnoff!! And in true burn-it-off style, this event is going to be something Fun, Fast and Furious!!

Race Format: Team Sprint (with a unique surprise twist). A team sprint is two people, each of whom do multiple laps. Length and number of laps will be slightly related to a) age and directly related to b) the number of servings of turkey n’ stuffing you had the night before.

Teams: You can either show up with a team (two people), or show up on your own, and we will put you on a team.

Technique: Skating

Who: Everyone and anyone is welcome to participate, whether you’ve raced before or watched your kids race. Some people may be going fast, but others will be staggering under the weight of prodigious turkey consumption the previous night.

When: 10:00 start on December 26th

Where: Nakkertok Nordic Centre

Registration: Register on the day-of, at the Nordic Centre Cabin. Please try and be registered before 9:30 so we can madly figure out start brackets.

Cost: $5 per person or $10 per team.

Prizes: Something awesome, including one for most awesome skisuit.

Grooming: Definitely awesome.

Course: Totally awesome.

See you there!!
