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.
