Ski Races a Success in Girdwood!
Over the past weekend, KMTA hosted ski races in Girdwood for the second time. Formerly known as the KMTA Classic, the races have transformed into the Corduroy Crush. Over 85 participants ranging in age from 3 to 63 years old came out to enjoy the beautiful weather! These events included a 2K Fun Race, a 2K Snowball Biathlon, a timed 5K Race, and a 2x2x2 Relay Race.
The gorgeous weather made for a delightful and exciting race day. Racers cruised along the groomed course, and the pre-made snowballs made for a fun 2K Biathlon for all participants. The 2x2x2 Relay also provided an opportunity for different age duos to race around the course multiple times.
