Don’t be alarmed, that’s just a bunch of Vikings on skis.
The 14th annual Wells Gray Birchleg, a cross-country skiing event held this year on the Candle Creek trails near Clearwater, is set for Sunday, Feb. 3.
Viking and Nordic warrior costumes are encouraged and there will be prizes for the best outfit.
Participants will have three courses from which to choose, all with differing degrees of difficulty.
The Birchleg commemorates an incident that occurred during a civil war in Norway in 1204.
Two Viking warriors on skis carried the son of their murdered king across two mountain ranges to safety.
The Birchleg gets its name from the birch-bark leggings they wore.
