Run to support Adopt an Athlete Program

Mon, Aug  3, 2009 - By CXC Skiing

5.5K Walk/Nordic Walk and 5.5K, 9K, 14.5K Trail Run - This exciting new event at Elver Park in Madison, Wisconsin will be run primarily on wooded ski trail with a few sections of single track trail. The trail features numerous climbs and the 9K and 14.5K feature some technical sections.

All proceeds from the event will go towards the Adopt an Athlete Program, started by the Central Cross Country Ski Association (a 501(c)3 not for profit corporation) to support opportunities for talented athletes to pursue athletic excellence in the Winter Olympic Games.

This inaugural year of Run for Snow will raise funds to adopt Matt Liebsch, CXC Elite Team member, 2009 U.S. Natonal Championships Bronze medalist and winner of the 2009 American Birkebeiner 52K Skate race. Matt, father of two future skiers, will run with the kids in the Snowball Kids Trail Run and participate in one of the trail run events.
