Moose on the Loose now ‘run’ by Park City Ski and Snowboard

PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Ski and Snowboard Team (PCSS) is the new owner/operator of the Moose on the Loose summer community youth trail running series.

The four-race series held June-September for children ages 3-14, who are often joined by the parents of the youngest participants. The races have been a local tradition since 2017.

Emma Garrard, PCSS Cross Country director, told TownLift, “We are super excited to run Moose on the Loose this year as it’s been a very inclusive event in the past that fits our mission, and we love to promote getting kids outdoors and being active at a young age.”

Founder and race director of Moose on the Loose, Leslie Keener, approached PCSS to take over the races even though she will still be involved to some capacity.
Keener wanted to step back from race directing MOTL and travel more and saw it as something that could support PCSS’s mission. There have always been a lot of PCSS Nordic athletes at the races and its coaches and athletes have helped out at the events in the past. Keener is also involved with PCSS as her daughter, June, is on the Nordic team. 

Register here for the races which serve as a fundraiser to benefit all the disciplines of PCSS.

Three different race distance courses for three different age ranges set up kids for success.
