First Elementary Race is Cancelled

Due to COVID restrictions, we have decided to cancel the first elementary race.  We are hoping to hold the second race, but we cannot confirm that at this time.  The date has yet to be determined.

Stay tuned …

Muskoka Elementary School Races

  1. Due to the COVID situation, we are not yet certain whether registration will be through the school or done individually.  We will keep you posted …
  2. Food – We will have large pizza slices for sale for $2 per slice. Hot chocolate will be free.  It is always difficult to estimate how much pizza to order. We are happy to sell pizza to parents, but would like to make sure all kids are served first.  Bring snacks/lunch.
  3. Washrooms – Washrooms are available in the Visitor Centre.
  4. Water – Please have your kids bring a water bottle, or other drink. A water bottle filling station is available in the Visitor Centre.
  5. Rentals – If you want to rent skis from Arrowhead Park, you should arrange this by the Friday, preceeding each race.  Please stop in at the Park Office or call the park at 789-5105 to arrange for any needed rentals.  
  6. Bibs –   Each child will be assigned a numbered bib for the race. There will be a charge of $50 per lost bib
  7. Race Starts 11 am.  Racers leave in pairs every 20 seconds
