Cross-country skiing

Sixty-four skiers and 44 volunteers put the Canada Games trails to their final test on Saturday at the third Subway 5K Race of the season held on the trails at Mount McIntyre, under spectacular blue skies and lightning-fast snow conditions.

Team Greenland — made up of Whitehorse skiers Jeff Wood, Gordon Puddister, Marcus Waterreus and Izak Baril-Blouin — won the Relay as they skied a total of 15 kilometres over the Canada Games courses, finishing ahead of Team New Brunswick (Brittany Smith, Laura Banner and David Greer) by a mere 30 seconds.

The Subway Relay included Orange Squad members as young as ten, and seasoned Yukon Ski Team members, club veterans and a few beginners entering their first race ever. Even though the 14 teams were made up at random the night before, all teams finished within 15 minutes of the winners. Teams were named for the provinces and territories with a few ‘visiting’ countries, including the winners from Greenland, and third place, Alaska (Janelle Greer, Sara Nielsen, Kenrda Murray and Nesha Wright).

 “The race went without a hitch and with a few minor adjustments to the stadium setup, I am confident we will be ready for the Games,” said Cross Country Yukon President Claude Chabot.

The Subway 5K race series will wind up next week with a Valentine’s theme. The Subway Valentine Relay will start at Mt Mac at 6 p.m. on February 14. Entry deadline is Tuesday, February 13. This event will require skiers to enter teams of two, and wearing Valentine’s costumes will be encouraged. One team member will ski a 2.5-kilometre loop and the other member will ski 5 kilometres. All skiers will be required to use skating technique.

Skiers participating in all four races will receive Subway gift certificates. The fastest Valentine team will win gift certificates and more will be given as draw prizes.
