Gung-Ho Beginner Racers: Skate
Theodore Wirth Park
Gung-Ho Beginners Skate will tackle new elements of skate technique every week. It is expected that these athletes are in good physical condition and will therefore work on technique and tackle some significant ski specific training each week. Part of every workout will will be dedicated to improving endurance and ski specific strength. This group is specifically for those that have little ski experience, but are strong runners, bikers, triathletes, etc. The goal is to jump start your cross-country ski racing career, and get you to your first few races quickly.
This is a “learning to race” class, so some very basic skiing experience is needed, and a moderate level of physical fitness is required. If you are looking for a beginning skate ski class that is not oriented to racing, you can check out the LNR Adult Skills Clinics or Loppet Ski Club.
