This past weekend the KiXS race team went to Canmore Alberta to kick off the race season with a classic distance and a skate distance race. The weekend came with some warm weather and sunshine. The first day was a shorter race for everyone, our youngest racer Marielle Ackerman had a great race placing second. In the Juvenile category we had two girls racing, Mackenzie Mclean placing 16th and Molly Miller taking the gold. In the Junior girls Annika Ackerman was 15th. On Saturday we had another warm day with a longer skate race. Marielle Ackerman came out with a medal, Mackenzie Mclean placed 7th and Molly Miller pulled out the gold medal once again. Annika Ackerman was 15th. Overall it was a great weekend of racing had by all, we will be heading to Vernon B.C this coming weekend for the next race of the season. Live results will be posted on zone4.ca. As well you can find us on Facebook for updates and info about the race team at “Kimberley Nordic Racers”
