Midwest Junior Championships Course Changes
February 27, 2017
The Midwest Junior Championships & Festival are still a-go at Theodore Wirth Park this upcoming weekend, March 3-5, 2017. With the recent lack of snowfall, we are limited to working with man-made snow, but fortunately the lower temperatures have allowed for recent snowmaking. Races will revolve around the 1.3K Intermediate Loop that comes in and out of the Upper Stadium. The Youth Cup distance races will do 1-3 loops of the course, and the sprint events will work with the shortcuts available. Festival events may be modified and will be in close proximity to the race loop in the Upper Stadium/bowl area. See our updated maps for competition and festival event plans. We will post further updates on the trail condition, but look forward to a fantastic weekend!
The Midwest Junior Championships are the last stop of the Skiwerx Series and CXC Youth Cup. Hundreds of skiers from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan are expected to attend. Events include Friday night Age Gap Relays; Classic Individual Races, Classic Tandem Sprint Relays, Sit-Ski race and Festival events take place on Saturday; and finally, Sunday includes a Freestyle Mass Start race, Freestyle Mixed Relays and SkiCross Time Trials.
Spectators and volunteers are encouraged! Please see here for volunteer opportunities.
