The SKAN (Ski Kincaid All Night)
Date: Mar 23, 2019
Times: 10 a.m. Saturday - 10 a.m. Sunday
Location: Kincaid Park
Join this 24-hour format race as an individual or a team. Enjoy an end-of-the-season tradition.
The SKAN (Ski Kincaid All Night) 24 is a lap-format race. You may race solo, as a duo relay, as a quad relay or even as part of an eight-person team. If a 24-hour ski race is a tad too daunting, we also offer 12-hour and 6-hour races. We offer a Junior
Division for racers 6-11: a team of four for the 6-hour race only. SKAN isn’t just about skiing for a ridiculously long time. It’s also about hanging out with friends, family, and fellow competitors, camaraderie, and competition, testing the limits
of your body (and mind), eating a whole lot of BBQ & waffles, winning raffle prizes (raffle every six hours on the hour, all night long!) and enjoying fabulous springtime skiing and dance parties in the wax bunker.
