Northeast Roller Ski Race Calendar

Short and sweet, here it is: a handy roller ski race in one spot, no matter who the organizer is.  Additional events will be added as OXF becomes aware of them.

15 September:  Climb to the Castle, Whiteface Mountain, Wilmington, NY.  Pre-registration is closed but you can still register day of race.  Hey… it’s only one hill!

29 September:  CRNA Tuneup, North Creek, NY.  Six- or 10-km roller races, see Capitol Region Nordic Alliance for details.

20 October: CRNA Relays at Harriman State Office Complex, Albany NY.  9 AM start.  On their website, CRNA calls for “individual and team relays,” in classic and skate technique and without poles.  In an e-mail, Kingston Nordic’s Greg Malia characterized this event as a sprint.

27 October: Sufferfest, Prospect Mountain, Lake George, NY.  Organized by Peru Nordic.  No sag wagons, be prepared to walk back to the start.

24 November (confirmed): Kingston Nordic roller races, Lake Katrine Middle School, Kingston, NY.  Five km classic, 10 km skate and 2 km novice races.  While the date is unconfirmed; this event is traditionally the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

    I’m not sure where this comment is going to public, or private. But , I competed in NYSSRA last season scoring a good number of points mostly just for hitting 5 races showin up. I want to join a team and compete for points team competition . If necessary I will try to start a team . I think there should be a team in the lower hudson . Carpooling , sharing lodging etc. not to mention camraderie. The athletes are here I want to convert runners and bicyclists to be the few to brave the “offseason”

      Should you start a team or club, best wishes. I’ve been told there are no NYSSRA affiliated clubs south of Albany, however I can’t confirm that. Keep me informed if you go forward.

        In my limited outreaches , I contacted the NJ x/c ski club about x/c ski racing and wanting to build a team South of Albany . They asked if I will speak at a meeting Dec 4 I believe or was it the 7th ? I’m probably not the best one to represent x/c ski racing as i’m new to it . But I am going to go. From your blog I assume you are from that part of New Jersey. Are you in that club?

          If you’re referring to the NJ Nordic Ski Club, no, I’m not a member. Do keep me advised as to the date if you go down to make a presentation. Email would be info at oygenfedsport dot com.
