On Saturday, the Door County Silent Sports Alliance held the second annual Eirawen 20 Ski Race at SNOWKRAFT Nordic. There were two races, a 10km race, 1 lap race for beginners that avoids some of the steeper hills, and a 20 km, 2 lap race for the more advanced skiers. The top 3 men and women finishers earned a prize as well as a participation medal for everyone who skied. Race director and Door County Silent Sports Alliance member, Bob Richards says that the silent sports are lifelong sports for everyone.
Richards adds that this year’s race nearly tripled the amount of participation, going from 17 skiers last year to 50 today. For more Door County Silent Sports Alliance events go to their Facebook page.
