Skyway Skuffle 10K Freestyle

It was frigid but it was fun! Snow for the Skuffle was crunchy and slow but there was brilliant sunshine which always improves the mood and the grooming was impeccable so racers came in challenged but happy. They were rewarded with Element Rice Cake samples which combined nicely with the Justins Nut Butter samples then topped off with Four Points Energy Bars and a hot cup of minestrone. A few lucky ones walked away with some wonderful door prizes from Loki Outdoor Gear. Thanks to those sponsors!

The race turned out to be a mentor/mentee battle as CMU Coach Dave Aschwanden eked out the win over ex-CMU racer Andrew James. And the women continue to impress! Women captured three of the top six places! They were led by young Mesa, CO local Jordan Miner who is currently racing with Aspen Nordic and tuned up for the US Championships in Vermont next week. Good luck, Jordan!
