Oarsman Ski Classique

OARSMAN SKI CLASSIC POSTPONED DUE TO LACK OF SNOW!

NEW DATE TENTATIVELY SUNDAY, MARCH 6. STAY TUNED....

 

We have snow! The 2016 Oarsman Ski Classic approaches! Registration details below...

 

If you haven't done this before, please be advised that it is a TOTALLY CASUAL and NON-THREATENING "race" for rower-skiers of ALL ABILITIES!  If all you can manage is a walk around the course on your skis, you are qualified for this race! In prior years the times for the classic race ranged from 21 to 51 minutes.  Yes, there are VERY FAST people and yes, there are VERY SLOW people so there is no excuse not to come.  It is a self-seeded mass start with one or two long loops so no one gets in anyone’s way.  The only race rule is that impolite, aggressive, or rude people risk not being asked back next year.  So play hard, but play nice!

 

Date:  Sunday, February 7, 2016

Location: The Strafford Nordic Center - (http://www.straffordnordicskiing.com/)  In addition to great snow, they have rentals and lessons available if you're interested in trying, say, skate skiing along with your classic (note: snow shoers are welcome!)

Cost: $20 for those 18 and over; $15 for those under 18.  This covers the cost of the trail pass at the Strafford Nordic Center good for skiing their fabulous trails all day, plus a little extra to cover their grooming and course setting and use of their room to warm up/put on boots, etc..

Schedule:

  • Bib pick up starts at 9:0 a.m.

  • 5k Skate Race:10:00 a.m. start time (note: you can ski classic in the skate race if you want)

  • 5k Classic Race: 11:00 a.m. start time

 

The Chili Fest/Awards Party:  We will continue the tradition of having a post-race chili/cornbread/cookie party at UVRF president Dan Ruml's house close by the Strafford Nordic Center. Directions will be passed out at the race. .  We will provide chili (both a veggie/vegan/gf chili and a regular full-on meat chili), the rest is potluck (cornbread, salad, fruit salad, veggie snacks, desserts), including BYOB.
