Little Cat Classic Ski Race Happens January 29th (Updated)

Published on: 2017/01/17 - in News

The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and members of the Canadian Ski Patrol (Frontenac Zone) are partnering to host the annual Little Cat Classic Cross-Country Ski Race.

UPDATE: The CRCA reports the Little Cat Classic Ski Race has been cancelled “due to lack of snow and poor trail conditions”.

“Snow fall yesterday was not sufficient to groom and open our ski trails. Trails currently have 1-3 cm of snow over ice and are slippery. Use of the trails is at your own risk and traction devices are recommended. The skating rink and equipment rental office are closed.”

Weather and conditions permitting, this year’s race will take place on Sunday January 29 at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area.

The five-kilometre and ten-kilometre races are scheduled to start at 10 am. Participants are to register 30 minutes before the start time and will cost $5 per person or $10 per team, on top of the regular gate entry fees.

A family fun ski relay, skating, snowshoeing and open skiing will begin at 1 pm.

The Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area is located on Division Street just two kilometres north of Highway 401.

Entry fees are: $5.50 per person for adults and children over 12, and $3 per person for children 12 and under, to a maximum fee of $14 per car.

Annual passes are available for $80 per year.
