We hope everyone is enjoying this final month of summer. Fall is approaching quickly, so if you are thinking about the upcoming ski season, Mount Washington nordic season passes are on sale for winter 2012. Note: Their earlybird prices are only in effect until September 30!
We’ll be opening our program registration in early October. Watch for website updates over the next couple of weeks. Additionally, your club needs you! If you can spare a few hours this fall and winter, contact us to choose from a variety of volunteer jobs! info@StrathconaNordics.com
In a blur of activity, the Junior Racing Team work hard at a recent plyometric training session.
This Sunday, August 28, join your fellow club members on a run/hike at Nymph Falls Park in Courtenay. Meet at 10am in the Nymph Falls parking lot to explore the trails along the Puntledge River. Be ready for approximately 2-3 hours of activity. Dress for the weather and bring your own hydration.
Labour weekend, we hope enough snow will have melted, so we can take our run/hikes into the mountains! Look for updates next week.
We have a change in the schedule for this weekend’s all-club run/hike. Due to snow (still!), we will not be doing the cross-over from Forbidden Plateau to Raven Lodge this weekend. Instead, we’ll run and hike in the Snowdon Forest in Campbell River.
Sunday, August 21
Meet at the Elk Falls logging road bridge at 10 am sharp
