We have done major work on our trails over the past couple of years and have been blessed to now have Pisten Bully grooming. A recent change to our start and finish will make the race quite a bit more spectator-friendly, too.
We will offer a 12.5K and 25K skate and classic race for adults, a 4K freestyle race for middle schoolers, and a 7.5K freestyle race for high schoolers. For 2023, we will manage the start line by putting racers into self-seeding waves of 20 or less in each wave. Ideally, more competitive races would place themselves in the early wave(s)
The Hinderbinder has always welcomed same-day registrations, but for 2023, we want to suggest that you pre-register to help us with planning. We will close registrations when we reach 200 adult participants.
