The CXC Youth Cup has its third race in the books with the conclusion of the Pre-Loppet on Sunday January 8th. The races took place on the newly aligned man- made snow loop at Wirth Park in Minneapolis. Over 100 kids participated in U8-U14 age categories. Despite the hilly course, spectators witnessed hard fought wins among all youth competitors throughout the day.
“The Loppet Foundation did a great job preparing the course and stadium to give our youth racers the best possible experience,” stated Amy Cichanowski, CXC Youth Coordinator. “We were all very pleased with the turn-out on a cold, but sunny, day”.
The next stop for the CXC Youth Cup will be the Birkie Trailhead Races on Jan 21st and 22nd.
