• Alex 50km Lahti Champion
    • Fantastic Turn out for Ottawa Para Nordic Try It Event!

      October 29, 2014

      Para-Nordic Ottawa hosted a very successful Try It day on Sunday October 26th.   With 15 participants, guides and coaches on hand, the sun chased away the morning rain.  We were fortunate to have Paralympians Margarita Gorbounova and Caroline Bisson on hand to help share their experiences, skills and knowledge with the participants.   From ski striding to sit skiing and trying a hand at biathlon, participants are now hooked, geared up and excited for the coming winter.  Special thanks to all of our volunteer guides and organizers, our host club Kanata Nordic, and to Chelsea Nordiq for lending us a laser rifle for the event.
