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.
