There will be no fourth leg (ski/snowshoe) for the 29th annual Highmark Quad games. The event has been canceled for lack of snow — bringing to a close the 2011/2012 Quad Games.
The Highmark Quad Games cross country ski race has been canceled for just the fourth time.
The 5-mile race and an accompanying 21/2-mile snowshoe event was to have taken place Sunday. It was first scheduled to take place Jan. 8, but had been postponed seven times because of poor snow conditions on the layout at Peek’n Peak’s Upper Golf Course in Findley Lake, N.Y.
The final results of the Quad season will be based on three events that took place in 2011: the 100-yard swim, bicycle time trial and 5-mile run. Overall and age group awards will be presented April 1 at 3 p.m. at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center.
The 30th anniversary Highmark Quad Games are scheduled to start with the 100-yard swim April 15 McComb Fieldhouse on the campus of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

(sigh)…the one year I was actually ready for it.
