NORDIC SKIING -- The countdown has begun for the annualLanglauf 10K classic cross-country citizens race set to start at 11 a.m. Sunday at Mount Spokane. 

A free waxing clinic geared to the race will be held today, 6 p.m., at Fitness Fanatics, 2425 E. Trent., where you can pre-register or pick up entry packet from 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

Tip:  If you're not a Langlauf skier, expect the parking lot at the Mount Spokane nordic trails to be jam packed Sunday until about 2:30 p.m. 

This is the biggest cross-country skiing event in the region, a distinction boosted by the $6,000 in prizes.
