Birke­beiner Nordic Ski Club’s Alice Hamil­ton said the day in­cluded free coach­ing from fe­male na­tional team ath­letes and other keen cross-coun­try women. “Af­ter­wards they re-fu­elled on scones, Brazen Brown­ies and cups of tea be­fore par­tic­i­pat­ing in a choice of 1km, 2½km or 5km dis­tance races. Ev­ery­one had a great day out on their skinny skis.“
