FIS World Snow Day / TN Biegówki was planned to take place in 15 locations across Poland. Due to poor weather conditions (heavy rain) the event in Toruń was cancelled. It will be better next year there - do not give up guys there in Toruń.
In course of the events organized in the remaining 14 locations we counted a total of 820 participants. The weather conditions were very tough, especially in Warsaw area, what influenced participation very negatively. Anyway, the participation record holder is Ruciane Nida with 300 people reported to experience cross country skiing and other snow activities. The detailed participation summary is as follows:
Gallery with pictures from all locations can be found at: http://www.tnbiegowki.pl/galeria.html
What we would like to emphasize is that all the events were organized with no financial support from any country-wide sponsors.
Keeping the events free of charge for the participating children (and in the most locations for adults as well) we managed the snow experience basing only on effort of TN Biegówki x-country trails organizers, ski equipment rentals, volunteers, support from local authorities, small local sponsors and local media. Thanks to FIS World Snow Day we succeeded to create a social network that will deliver a lot of fun for children and people of all ages in the future.
