Midcoast Conservancy will host its seventh annual Biathlon at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson March 2. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate! Racers can compete individually or in teams of four, cross-country skiing laps between which racers take a turn at the paintball rifle range. All rifles are provided by Midcoast Conservancy, and each racer will receive safety training on how to use the rifle. Snowshoe racers are welcome.
Races will begin about 9 a.m. and continue into the early afternoon. All day long there will be bonfires, along with great food and hot chocolate from the Alna General Store.
Registration fees are $35 for adults, $10 for kids and students. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited and prices go up $5 per participant on Feb. 23. Day-of registrations as space allows. To register, go to https://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/midcoast-conservancy-biathlon/. Anyone having questions should call Midcoast Conservancy at (207) 389-5150.
