Teams wanted for Canada’s oldest multi-sport relay

The first snowflakes have fallen at Mount Washington — the starting point for the Royal LePage Snow to Surf Relay.

Next year will be the 36th running of Canada’s oldest multi-sport relay that combines alpine and nordic skiing, running, mountain biking, kayaking, road cycling and canoeing.

Registrations for the April 29 event will be open online by Dec. 1.

Entries were down by about a third last year due to two low snow seasons.

The Ski & Surf Shop Tsunami was last year’s overall winner with a time of 3:18:54.
