It began as a crazy idea...
It became a challenge between friends...
It grew into a world-unique event, thrilling racers and participants alike.
I am pleased to announce the second annual Spears and 'Shoes Biathlon at FortWhyte Alive, coming up on February 19th, 1-3 pm. The team that brought you the first Spears and 'Shoes, and TIMBERRR!!! Lumberjack Challenge back in November, have been hard at work and Spears and 'Shoes 2011 promises to be a blast!
Snowshoes take the place of skis and atlatls (spear-throwers) take the place of rifles in this FortWhyte twist on biathlon. This fun event is about embracing your inner paleolithic hunter, and competing for your chance to be world champion! In addition to bragging rights, a handmade atlatl set are up for grabs.
