Saint Mary’s 10K event scheduled for Jan. 25

This year’s Saint Mary’s 10K Nordic ski races will be held on Sunday, Jan. 25, at Saint Mary’s University.

The public is invited to compete in three separate races: a 10K classic-style citizens’ event at 11 a.m., a kids’ Minnesota Youth Ski League race at noon; and a 10K skate-style race at 1 p.m.

Participants can register in competitive or recreational classes. All three races wind through the beautiful and challenging bluffs and valleys surrounding the Saint Mary’s campus. The cost to participate is $10 per race.

Registration, the starting line and the finish line will be near Saint Yon’s Hall, located on the back east portion of campus.
