Another successful Boundary Trails Distance Challenge is in the record books. How do you measure success?

119 skiers from all over Manitoba welcomed back winter with a full day of activity. After more than a week of unseasonably warm weather and rain there had been some doubts that skiing would be possible but cooling came just in time and the ski trails were in good condition.

The stars shone brightly Friday evening as the first 40 skiers headed on to the trails with headlamps blazing. It was a crisp start to the event but a gorgeous winter night.

Saturday morning under bright sunshine more skiers arrived and hit the trails crisscrossing through the woods and over the fields. A bit of light snow fell around midday giving the whole scene a snow globe effect. There was a plenty of socializing and eating but mostly a whole lot of skiing. When the bell rang to officially end the skiing at 8:00pm the last few skiers glided in for a final report.

A total of 4716km of skiing had been tallied up in 24 hours, a distance spanning Vancouver to Newfoundland and a new event record. A record 16 skiers covered a personal 100km or more. Two of our club’s junior racers, Aaron Warkentine and Mattias Klassen, celebrated Canada’s 150th year by skiing 150km each. A new all time individual record of 168km was recorded by 16 year-old Tessa Warkentine and at age 10 Naomi Wiens became the youngest person ever to join the Century Club.

There may have been a few weary muscles heading home but most everyone left with a smile.
