Mike Crawford and Morgan Aldridge got the Freezer Food Series started with victories in a 2.9-mile run at Tsalteshi Trails on Wednesday night.

The race was originally scheduled to be a five-kilometer ski, but a week of rain and above-freezing temperatures forced competitors to the singletrack trails for a run.

Crawford won at 25 minutes, 28 seconds, while Joey Klecka was second at 26:20. Aldridge was the top women’s finisher at 31:47, while Cassie Collins was next at 35:21.

The series continues Wednesday, with registration at 5:30 p.m. and race at 6 p.m. next to the hockey rink at Skyview Middle School. The race planned, assuming cooperation of the weather, is a five-kilometer freestyle ski race.
