|MVP Health Care takes good care of all Stowe Derby skiers|
Stowe, VT - This year's edition of the short course race was a tremendous success. A total of 120 young competitors geared up to ski in the 65th anniversary of one of the most famous cross-country ski race in America, the Stowe Derby.
With perfect snow conditions and brilliant skies, the short course racers tackled the course with great enthusiasm. For many of the competitors ages 5 and up, this was a first chance at skiing on cross-country skis. We celebrate all participants for their willingness to try a new sport and push their physical ability to the max. What a great way to be active and contribute to a healthy lifestyle!
Fastest time of the day was posted by Francis Foley, 14 of Acton, MA who blasted through the 6km course in 17:57. Close behind and only .4 slower than his friend was Grant Meglis, also 14. In third was Michael Chiauzzi with a time of 18.16.5
On the girls' side, the competition was just as intense. Katherine Innamorati of Carlisle stole the title with a blasting 18.40 She was followed by Tiphaine Kriger, 15 of Colchester, VT and by Meryl Cherner of Acton, MA.
The Stowe Derby Short Course is a fun cross country ski race held on the Stowe Recreation path. The course is a gentle 6km finishing in the picturesque village of Stowe. All skiers were treated to water, candy, cheese and plenty of goodies to celebrate their athletic accomplishment.
Sincere thanks to our valued sponsors including MVP Health Care and Turtle Fur Group for their generous contributions to this great athletic family activity.
