After a good solid blizzard, things are looking good for the 2013 Runner Sled time trials on Saturday.
The trail got hit with a nice dumping over the weekend and the groomer hit it this morning. We’re good to go!
Schedule for Time Trials weekend is as follows:
Note: The only way to qualify for Race Day is to earn a top-16 spot on Time Trials Day
Time Trials take place at: the end of the Bragdon Rd in Montville, ME (on the backside of Hogback Mountain). Meet there at 8:30.
Bring a runner sled and check out this page for more info.
As you all know, there hasn’t been much snow in the past 6 weeks.
If some doesn’t fall soon, the 2013 New England Runner Sled Championship may have to be cancelled.
This isn’t ideal, but right now there is not a speck of white stuff on the backside of Hogback.
Stay tuned and pray for snow.
Brian Trahan nipped GW Martin in the last race of the finals round to claim the 2012 title of Fastest Runner Sledder in All the Land. Congratulations Brian!
The title of “Fastest Runner Sledder in all the Land” will belong to one of these racers when the ice dust settles on February 25, 2012 on the backside of Hogback Mountain.
