Save the date: April 20, 2019 Mud n' Ice Quadrathlon

The fabled race is back Saturday, April 20! It's Craftsbury groomer Keith Woodward's favorite race (he also doubles as course designer and chief organizer). The exact course is TBD as the day draws nigh, but the plan is that you'll start your day on our ski trails with ~9k freestyle, followed by ~5 miles of running, a ~5 mile paddle, capped with a 12mi bike on lovely Kingdom dirt roads in mud season.

Map of 2018 routes (see pages of pdf for individual legs)
Note:  Wylie Hill (run leg) remains mostly frozen for the half mile descent (where the road is unmaintained during winter). Exercise caution when running, and DO NOT try to drive up or down it. Access transition area #2 from Rt 14.

Entry will be online via SkiReg. Watch for registration opening soon.

GRP Athletes Compete at Holmenkollen and Drammen World Cups

The World Cup season is winding down, which usually means it's time for the annual stop in Oslo, Norway, for two of the biggest events of the year. On March 9 and 10, Oslo hosted the iconic Holmenkollen 30/50k ski races. Then, two days later racing moved to Drammen, Norway for city sprints. The races boast some of the largest and rowdiest crowds of the season, with campfires lining the courses and spectators camped out for day before. Four GRP athletes competed in either the Holmenkollen or Drammen, or both.

On Saturday, women raced 30k classic on the tough Oslo courses, and GRP athlete Kaitlynn Miller finished 42nd. The next day, the men raced 50k on the same courses. Adam Martin finished 31st, just outside the points, and a new personal best World Cup result for him. Ben Lustgarten ...
