The Prince George Iceman is set to run today. However, the skate portion of the race has been cancelled due to warm weather.
Organizers were hoping for the skate to go ahead as planned but say, “The skate is cancelled because it is just too dangerous. We were crossing our fingers and hoping for it! But half of the Oval is not safe enough to skate.”
The rest of the race will go ahead as planned. The Iceman begins with an 8km Cross Country Ski at Otway Nordic Centre. All skiers must be at Otway by 10:00 am. Following the ski is a 10km run, followed by a 5km run, and an 800 metre swim. The event wraps up at the Aquatic Centre.
