BARTLETT NH – For 46 years, The Red Parka Challenge Cup Race has offered themost exciting dual slalom race in the East. It is also arguably the longest running race. And all proceeds benefit the Eastern Slope Ski Club’s Jr Ski program.
Qualifiers begin at 9:30 am followed by several categories of head to head dual slalom in the afternoon. This is a great spectator event, too with superb viewing at the pro-style jump.
The committee plans to reach its goal through new fundraising strategies including a PledgeReg, where racers can raise additional funds beyond the racing fee to compete for prizes. The race fee is $65 in advance and registration takes place online at skireg.com. Racers can opt-in for the PledgeReg and those that raise $300 or more will have their race fee waived. Individuals or teams are both eligible to compete for separate grand prizes for raising the most money.
Keeping with its theme, “Bump It Up” will be the race slogan this year and the committee is working on new race swag for spectators and racers to purchase during the event. Proceeds from merchandise sales would go to the cause.
Racers must sign up online at www.skireg.com by March 13th.
