Disability Snowsport UK’s National Skiathon 2011
Attention skiers and snowboarders: Tuesday May 17th 2011 is the date of Disability Snowsport UK’s (DSUK) third National Skiathon. Skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities are invited to take part in teams of 6, alongside the British Disabled Ski team, and an exciting collection of Britain’s top freestylers and celebrities (to be announced).
Entry is £66 per team with the requirement to raise a minimum of £666. The challenge is to ski 666 runs in 6 hours at one of 6 UK indoor ski slopes including the Chill Factore in Manchester; Tamworth Snowdome in Staffordshire; The Snow Centre – Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire; Sno!zone Braehead in Glasgow; Sno!zone Castleford in West Yorkshire; Sno!zone Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. Equipment hire is included in the entry fee and there are prizes for the teams that raise the most money and ski the most runs.
There’s no need to be a top-flight skier or boarder – quizzes and games give everyone the chance to win extra runs for their team. Each participant also receives a goodies bag and a T-shirt as a memento of a great day out raising money to help bring joy and excitement to many people living with disabilities throughout the UK. DSUK’s target is to raise a minimum of £35,000 so get a team together now.
