Thanks for triathlon suppport

Warm weather welcomed athletes this year at the Kachemak Nordic Ski Club Sea to Ski Triathlon. Its always one race leg that rears its ugly head and this year it was the bike, where athletes were forced to peddle through mash potato snow to complete it.

The KNSC would like to express its thanks to Homer Saw and Cycle for co-sponsoring the race and to all the generous businesses that donated door prizes and helped make the race possible: Captains Coffee, Chain Reaction Sports, Cosmic Kitchen, Cycle Logical, Fat Olives, Homer Saw and Cycle, Kenai Peninsula Suites and Marine Services of Alaska. The city of Homer Public Works and the Homer Volunteer Fire Department generously provided support for course set up and EMT monitoring. I would like to personally thank all the many volunteers who helped during the preparation and day of the race. You all made it happen.

Lastly, congratulations to all the athletes who participated. The 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 http://kachemak nordic ski club.org/.
