XCSO Inter-Club Kilometer Challenge Update
Congratulations!  Highlands Trailblazers moved into 2nd place over the weekend! 

We are now ahead of Lappe Nordic but only by a mere 1,200 km's.  That's not much considering our team has put in more than 47,000 kilometers so far!  Hardwood is also not far behind at about 45,000 km's.

So keep counting those kilometers!  Everyone's contributions make a big difference especially given that we have 181 athletes on our team versus 200+ for the other teams vying for the podium.

Conditions are great!  So go long or short but make sure to update your clicks on the spreadsheet now.
