Be prepared for a cancellation for Saturday1/28 - we should be able to determine course quality and safety for racing by this evening 1/27 by 8pm.

Mother nature is playing havoc with us!!! We have to play day by day.

If Sat 1/28 is cancelled - and if the weather does what it is supposed to do we will try on Sunday to hold 2 5K races ( classic & skate) for JNQ racers ( 10K for any Open / Citizen races).
