The 4th Annual Fernie Winter Wheezer promises a great day of fun on the Fernie trails. Registration is now open, this year joining forces with the Fernie Nordic Society and their Teck Kootenay Cup and Full Moon Social. Ready for a fun weekend? Wheezer details are below..
THE RUN – The 5km trail run is the compulsory element in your Duathlon, and is the first leg. A fun trail run through the Provincial Park trails, starting and ending at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. Snowshoes are optional, but usually not required due to the packed down trails – although somewhat snowfall dependent!
New this year! To you help your run, the kind folk of Icebug Canada will be coming to the race with their fleet of demo shoes. On a first come, first served base, you can borrow shoes to race in. With the option to purchase your own too.
THE SKI – After your run, choose from a ~10km Skate or Classic loop of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre.
THE FAT BIKE – Or instead, opt for a fun 5km fat bike.
CATEGORIES: Solo or Team. Male, Female or Mixed. 12+ Categories too.
KIDS 3km SKI: To cater for the Teck Kootenay Cup racers in town, we’re also offering a fun 3km NORDIC ONLY race for ages 8-14yrs.
PRICE: $35 per person for adults, $25 per person for youth. Kid’s 3km ski $10. Entry costs include grooming fees and racer giveaway. And if you enter the Teck Kootenay Cup and Winter Wheezer, save $5 at registration!
