SKI TO SEA REGISTRATION
Ski to Sea registration is currently under way since Jan. 7 and in the past two years has sold out with 500 teams registered.
This year's process has changed with a new registration company: Captains are the first to register and create a team (captains must be part of the team) online at 2mev.com/2013-ski-sea; once the team has been created and paid for, captains then start inviting the seven racers to join their team; the seven racers should wait until they receive the invite email from the registration system before paying their share of the total team costs.
For more information contact 2MEvents at 888-988-2453 or email Info@SkitoSea.com.
This year's Ski to Sea race is Sunday, May 26.
