Nastar Opening: Hunter Cup 1 and Mid Atlantic Masters Race
To open the Nastar Season at Hunter Mountain, we are joining forces with the Mid Atlantic Master Series and the Hunter Cup series to host a fun race for everyone on December 14th. (Backup day 12/21).
With the first two runs (one from each course) counting towards the results, we will award Mid-Atlantic prizes and season long points by our traditional Masters age groups. And all race participants will also be competing in the Hunter Cup Series which is a season long monthly competition with a fun grand finale race and prizes. The award ceremony will be held in Colonels Hall at 4:30pm.
Racing will start at 10am; we will close the race at 12 noon. So all race runs should be completed by 12. You will then be able to continue to run Nastar for the rest of the day until 2pm. This is a great opportunity to see if you can further improve your Nastar Handicap for bragging rights and earn a shot at qualifying for the Nastar Nationals at Aspen Colorado. .
