March 17: : Bread Loaf Citizens' Race
A crisp, sunny but windy day accompanied 40 skiers out of the mass start area and on to the Tormondsen Family Race Trail for the Annual Bread Loaf Citizens' Race.
In the 4.6K race, the Overall Women's Skate winner was Suzanne Calhoun in 20:38. The overall Men's Skate winner was Garrott Kuzzy in 18:17 - the top finisher for the day.
