Rock and Ice Ultra 2008
22 -27 Mar 08

Welcome to year 2 of the Rock and Ice Ultra run over the lakes in the local Yellowknife area. The race for skiers, snowshoers and runners has 3 races running concurrently: a one day 70 km race, a three day 150 km race, or a 6 day 250 km race. 

Worked again as the Safety Director responsible for racer safety and tracking for the first two days of the race.  This year the weather was far easier on the racers and most completed the first day in good shape with only a couple of relay teams 'houring out'.

Had the same great bunch of people working for me as last year....doing route marshalling, first aid, and search and rescue.  and when the logistical end of the race fell apart again, they all reached deep and pulled it off again.  

Next year l intend to compete...........
