The Craftsbury Outdoor Center put a beautiful event together to cap NENSA’s Popular races at The Henchey Memorial New England Club Relay Championships. 44 teams came out for the event, which was held in conjunction with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Super Tour Finals. The race consisted of a 4×5km relay with a course that utilized easier some easier terrain, which kept the speed and oxygen uptake high! You can get a nice feel for the fast and festive atmosphere in our “Magic Movie” — most skiers have a spot!
There was a creative matrix of team compositions with seven different categories taking top honors — wax prizes from Swix and some vintage items from Mike Gallagher’s personal collection. At the conclusion of the relay events, we honored some of our year-end-adult Age Group winners with NENSA mugs and LL Bean headbands for category winners. We will have a complete recap of Zak, Club and Marathon winners next week!
