The Grand Mesa Nordic Race Series finally kicks off with the Grand Mesa Classic on Saturday December 30 at 11 AM at Skyway. Snow is meager so we will race a modified 8K out-and-back course on Scales Lake Road with the Start/Finish a little over a K out from the parking lot at the Scales/Lions intersection. Allow yourself a little extra time to get to the Start. This is a Classic only race and track should be set for most of the course although understand the tracks may not be pristine and there may be gaps. Registration is on race day only, $15 for GMNC members and $25 for others. The youth race will start at 9:30 am. There will be a 2 km race for children. There will also be a short race on the flat for children under 8 years old. For more details check the website www.gmnc.org or call 434-9753. We do need a couple of helpers. Please call 434-9753 to volunteer.
