The Nelson Nordic Ski Club will be holding a community loppet.
All proceeds generated from this event will go directly to the Nelson CARES Society to support their efforts in creating more affordable housing units.
This event will bring together people from all across the area who have a passion for cross-country skiing or would simply like to get out for a day on the snow. It is an amazing opportunity to get involved with and we are looking for as many participants as possible as this will be contributing to the solution of an extremely important issue within our region.
The event is organized and run entirely by students at L.V. Rogers and it wouldn’t be possible without the generous contributions of several local businesses. It will be held on March 16 at the Nelson Nordic Ski Club, and the cost to register will be $15 for adults and $10 for youth and seniors.
There will be a light lunch and warm drinks provided followed by a draw with amazing prizes from local businesses all across our community. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race itself will start at 10 a.m. with options of either a three kilometre or 7.5 km course.
This is a fun, non-competitive event and we strongly encourage to dress up as there will be an award for the best-dressed participant. Other awards will also include the first person to cross the finish line skate skiing, as well as those using classic technique. There will be skis available to rent on site and if you would be interested in volunteering at this event please contact us at NNSCinvolvement@gmail.com.
