Five hearty members of the Peru Nordic Masters travelled north of the border to participate in the annual Gatineau Loppet.  They were led by Janet Findlay who captured the gold medal in the womens’ M6 53 km classic on Valentine’s Day.  Janet was joined in the classic marathon by her husband, David Hunter, who finished 10th in the mens’ M6 division.

The rest of Peru Nordic stayed home to participate in “family days” at MVH.  Long, slow distance sessions enabled the Peruvians to recover from non-stop racing, and to precover for both the big ESG finale and the NYSSRA Championships.
