California Gold Rush just around the corner

The 2009 California Gold Rush will be held at Royal Gorge on Sunday, March 22.

The scenic and challenging Nordic race serves as a fundraiser for the Far West Junior Ski Programs and attracts recreational skiers and top racers from across the nation. Participants may ski the full marathon distance of 42 kilometers (the Gold Rush), a half-marathon of 21K (Silver Rush) or the 10K Bronze Rush.

Royal Gorge donates 100 percent of proceeds to help develop youth and junior skiers in the region. For questions call 852-0879 or e-mail info@farwestnordic.org.
