The Mountain Madness relay race happened yesterday in Banff. It is a fun, multi-sport race with teams of five competing in a five-leg relay from the top of Mount Norquay to the finish line in town.
It starts with a downhill ski leg from the top of Mt. Norquay, then the race then works its way down to the Recreation grounds(formerly on the Bow River) via run, ice skate, classic cross-country ski and snowshoe segments. Much of the action takes place at the Recreation Grounds, where friends and fans cheer on the athletes. Teams try to out-do each other with wacky team names, themes and costumes.
Chuck was there and captured the action in photos.
