To help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our carbon footprint, Kawartha Nordic has setup a pilot carpooling website to help faciliate carpools to and from the club. This will also help alleviate pressure on the parking lot which can get very busy on weekends. Visit the carpooling page for more information!
Kawartha Nordic has partnered with Lakefield College School to offer a number of races in the coming weeks, and we could really use your assistance.
Races are exciting to watch and even more exciting to be a part of. Most roles involve simple, clear tasks and no experience, plus training is provided.
If you might be interested, please check out our iVolunteer pages for more details on roles and shifts to see if this may work for you.
