Kind-a-hard 2022

Kind-a-hard Classic - Sunday 20th February at Laurel Mountain 

The 2022 Kind-a-hard has been cancelled, due to torrential rain and bad drainage.  We will try again next year.

The 2022 Kind-a-hard classic cross country ski race was planned for Sunday 20th February using the groomed cross country ski trails at Laurel Mountain.  It is a 5km individual start classic race.  There will also be a fun 1km race for kids aged 12 and under.  The race date was postponed from Feb 6th due to (very) inclement weather.
