UPDATE, JAN. 7, 2015: Saturday's Northern Illinois Nordic remains on hold. "A bit" of snow is coming Thursday afternoon. Final decision will be made by 10:30 a.m. on Friday. Arrowhead is really trying to make it happen. Stay tuned.
After losing to Mother Nature four years in a row, we're far from giving up. the 2015 Northern Illinois Nordic is on the books for 9 a.m. (not 9:30) on Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015, at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton. All we can do is think snow, good grooming and a lot of fun for a lot of people. Watch for updates here, on the Northern Illinois Nordic Facebook page and via the XCChicago Yahoo discussion group. We plan to have a 14K, 7K and 4K for kids. Please go to http://www.signmeup.com/104365 for complete information and to sign up online. There will be race day registration.
