The Seeley Lake Nordic Team led the 10K at the start and the finish. Owen Hoag, Will Batchelder and Eric Lorentz took the top three spots and Cora Stone (far right) took first for the women and Ella Batchelder took third.

SEELEY LAKE – Groomers hit the trails at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 to prepare the course for this year's OSCR, "Over Seeley's Creeks and Ridges." Nearly 120 racers came from all over the northwest including racers from Minnesota and Alaska for this year's 50K, 25K, 10K and 5K races Jan. 25.

This year's race was a double loop format for the 50K. 50K racers started to trickle in for their second loop following the start of the 25K. With no new snow to work with and warm temperatures, the course started off icy and turned to soft later in the morning.
