Sea to Sea rounds out season

Nordic skiing was virtually put on hold this season due to this winter’s dismal snow fall. The Kachemak Nordic Ski Club hosted its annual Sea to “Ski” event March 29 with the ski leg reduced to a run down the beach.

Nordic skiers from Homer and the greater Kenai Peninsula are so wonderful and spirited, however, that they didn’t flinch at this year’s work around.

This year brought 45 ironmen and women and 22 participating in teams.  The KNSC would like to thank Homer Saw and Cycle for co-sponsoring the race and all the generous individuals and businesses that donated door prizes and helped make the race possible: Captain’s Coffee, Cosmic Kitchen, Cycle Logical, Homer Saw & Cycle, Hopped up Espresso and Marine Services of Alaska. The city of Homer, Public Works generously provided support for course set up and outhouse facilities. 

I would like to personally thank all the volunteers who helped during the preparation and day of the race.

Lastly, congratulations to all the athletes who participated. KNSC hopes you had a great race and will come back again next year. 

Race results for Sea to Ski and all the other races for this year and past are posted at the KNSC website kachemak
