This was the second year of the King and Queen of the Hel Race.  This race was open to all Ski Challenge members and non Ski Challenge members and is held on Helsinki.  We had 54 participants.  If you were a Ski Challenge member, we took your “rated Handicap” going into the race and compared what your earned handicap was in the race.  We then determined a % improvement (or un-improvement).  We crowned a King and a Queen of the Hel based on the best % of improvement.  We also gave prizes to the fastest racers in various age groups.

An awards ceremony was held on Saturday night in the new Chalet next to the Burnt Onion Bar.  Anika Hager was crowned Queen of the Hel.  Eddie Overholt was crowned King (for the second year in a row).  To see all the results for this race follow these links:
