2015 Bruno’s Cup – Results

Good evening everyone.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers that dedicated some of their times to make this year race a success. We were graced with excellent weather, and a lot a cheers from all the spectators. Some of the spectators were so engrossed in the cheering of the younger participants that they missed their own start time.

I wish to also thank our sponsor for this years event. All participants from the pre-juvenile category to those of the Jr Boys/Girls have received a complimentary water bottle from 2294 Army Cadets.

And finally Also I would like to thank Thunder Bay Nordic Trails/Kamview Nordic Centre and especially Peter Crooks for the excellent grooming despite his busy schedule of getting the course ready for next weekend’s event at the Sleeping Giant.

Here are the posted results
