March Madness

Sunny & beautiful by day, cold at night! It must be spring... and race season!

~The Iditarod winner crossed the finish line in Nome this morning, setting a new record.

~Saturday, March 19th is the Oosik Classic Ski Race! Last year 250 people descended upon Talkeetna to ski the 50k and 25k runs then celebrate like crazy. This year is predicted to be no different. The groomers have been working hard on that trail all winter.

~The next round of WFRs will be here on the 19th! There are still a few spaces left on that session - call the AMS office to register.
