Saturday 17 February 2018 - The 40th Gatineau Loppet (Part 1)

We lined up at 9 am for this 51 km cross country skiing excursion in perfect conditions.

A fuller report will follow, but this is just to reassure readers that all went well, despite the official results showing me as a non finisher as my timing chip must have broken.

Four of us, Shane, Sue, Stephen and me all finished up to ten minutes inside five and a half hours. We are pictured above. Ken and Susan finished some distance ahead of us.

More to follow tomorrow.

That's interesting. works out at roughly 6mph, so twice as fast as walking, but what was the terrain like, was there much uphill?

Was it linear or circular ? If the former how did you get back to the start?
