The Kenora Nordic & Biathlon Club is preparing to host the Kenora Skiathlon/MB Cup #2 on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018.
The skiathlon is the only event in which skiers use both ski techniques: classic and then skate. Racers begin with a mass start using classic technique and the longer skis and shorter poles, used for this technique. After the first leg (5km for competitive skiers), they quickly change skis and poles in a pit box with the clock still running before embarking on a second leg of the same distance in skate technique. The first skier to cross the finish line is the winner.
Spectators welcome! It is a very exciting race to watch with plenty to see in the stadium.
