For 32 years, the Bavarian Iron Legs quadrathon has been a tradition in Kimberley. The grueling race includes a two kilometre downhill ski, a seven kilometre cross country ski, a four kilometre run down to the Platzl from the Nordic trails, and a four and a half kilometre cycle back up the hill to Kimberley Alpine Resort. There are also shorter distances available for children’s teams. Compete as a team of up to four or as an individual.
This year the Iron Legs has been pushed up two weeks to March 14. KAR events coordinator Megan Field encourages entrants to get into the St. Patrick’s spirit by wearing green. It’s also the beginning of March break. Conditions on the mountain are great, Field says.
“Competitors will receive a voucher for a burger from the barbecue after the race, and we will have awards in the plaza. It should be a fun, rewarding day.”
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (250) 432-0313 if you are planning to register for this event or interested to be a volunteer. If you or friends do not cross country ski, please notify KAR and it may be possible to fill that portion of the Quadrathon for you.
