Chelsea Super Sprint Jeunesse
March 7 @ 9:00 am
The 2019 Chelsea Super Sprint Jeunesse will take place Saturday, March 2nd. Save the date!
Chelsea Nordiq Ski Club is proud to invite you to the 6th annual Chelsea Super Sprint Jeunesse.
This year promises to be truly exciting for all young athletes. In addition, we will also be offering an open female and male category for those that are 18+. As with every year, the course will be full of challenging obstacles, punctuated with bumps, jumps, twists, and crazy turns. *NEW LOCATION* The event will take place at the race trails at Camp Fortune/Rider’s Roost! READ THE PARKING AND SHUTTLE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!
RACE STARTS AT 8:30am!
Everyone will race three rounds of a super-cross style sprint course. There is never a dull moment! All Sprints are free or skate technique. All heats will be run in King’s Court format where the top two of each heat advance to the next heat. The 3rd and 4th stay in the same heat and 5th and 6th drop to the heat below. Final category results will be done based on the final ranking after the third heat.
It’s a great day of fun events with food, music, and tons of family fun!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PARKING:
Start time for this race will be 8:30am. We know that this is early and adds extra challenge. However, this allows us to arrive on site before the alpine ski traffic arrives at Camp Fortune. The alpine ski traffic can be very heavy with wait times of 30mins or more if the weather is good. Being caught in this traffic will mean Sprint athletes missing their races.
Parking for this event will happen at P9 in the Gatineau Park. We are not allowed to park at Camp Fortune as we do not own nor have permission to use this parking lot and it is dedicated to alpine skiers.
There will be a shuttle service that goes from P9 to Camp Fortune. We encourage all people to Car Pool and to drop off athletes and equipment at Camp Fortune. The driver can return to P9 and be shuttled back to the race course. This keeps athletes on a direct path to the race site and minimizes shuttle wait times as we will have fewer people to move back and forth.

Once dropped off by the shuttle there is a 400m walk or ski to Chalet Des Erables to where the race will start.
We understand that this is a lot of logistics early in the morning, give yourself lots of time! It should all run smoothly.
