BC Midgets: Save the dates!

The RNSC is hosting the Midget Championships on March 3 and 4, 2018.  This is a provincial level, 2-day race that draws approximately 250 young athletes and their families from all over the BC.  Midgets is a race for skiers ages 9-12 with a focus on participation and FUN!  In addition to a classic interval race, skate sprints and a dress-up relay race, there will be an athlete lunch and awards banquet.  This large-scale event requires tremendous volunteer support, and we will need approximately 70-80 volunteers each day.  We would love it if you could lend a hand.   Please email Natalie MacLeod at [email protected] if you are interested in helping with the race.


Keep your fingers crossed for some more snow, and I hope to see you on the trails soon!
