The UBC Okanagan Heat women are defending national champions and have just recently earned a No. 1 ranking for this season. The Heat men finished 10th in 2013 and will take the opportunity of Saturday’s preview meet to gain some momentum and shoot for a medal in 2014.
The women’s 6 km. race is slated for 11 a.m. (PDT), the men kick off an hour later at 12 p.m. (PDT) for their 8-kilometre race. The course is set up in Calgary’s Confederation Park.
