2019 Cheri Walsh Memorial Eastern Cup Race

Emily Magnus '88
Another Cheri Walsh Memorial Eastern Cup Race is in the books. Snow, mixed with rain, made selecting the right kick wax a challenge, and even on the downhills the going was slow. But that didn't dampen anyone's spirits. With help from DJ and Holderness Music Director Alec Sisco, racers, spectators and volunteers sang and danced their way through the day. This year's race course featured an epic jump shortly before the finish, and while racers could choose to ski around the jump, many chose the quicker method, sending it through the air. The Bill Koch race at the end of the day proved to be the highlight of the day; what could possibly be better than seeing the next generation of nordic racers discover their love and passion for the sport? Below is a highlight reel from the day.
