I-600 Route from Alex to Willmar IS Raceable

2017I600Logo140x188I-600 ROUTE FROM ALEX TO WILLMAR IS RACEABLE

Brian Nelson has spent the last 2 days driving the route from Alexandria to Willmar twice and it is not perfect but it IS useable. There are places where the ditches are full with 50 feet of snow on both sides and there are some occasional spots with grass showing through, but it IS raceable and you can make it. It would be even better with a little more snow added before the race, which is in the forecast. Please register for the race and the fuel pass ASAP. Deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 1st at 8:00pm.

Our Park Rapids race showed that there is lots of snow and the race course for the I-600 looks in good shape all the way to Alexandria. We have snow in the forecast for southern MN so hoping for a few inches to shore up the Alexandria to Willmar run. Please get your registrations in as early as you can as we have a lot to prepare for the big event, we would sure appreciate it. I-600 Registration deadline is only a week away and closes on Wednesday, Feb. 1st at 8:00pm.

USXC Racers MUST Carry a Cell Phone

usxclogonewswebUSXC Racers MUST Carry a Cell Phone

All USXC Cross Country events require the participant to carry a cell phone. You don’t need an expensive smart phone, just a cheap flip phone is easier to carry and keep warm. You should find or make a pocket somewhere on your jacket where the phone will stay warm. Program in the USXC emergency numbers. We want you all to stay safe on the race course!
