The end of the NYSSRA season approaches. Here are your options to go out with a bang:

Saturday*: Glenville Hills 5K Skate: We have good Snow Coverage and need to time our grooming as it firms up tonight. We have a flat 1.25 course in real good shape. We have a 2.5 K loop with some puddling, so depending on how it drains we will use the best course. We will have good firm fast conditions on our largely flat rolling course. We will not be using the front yard hills since the snow will be fast.

*Thanks to Maple ski ridge our backup venue: -GHN-ADK Vauhti appreciates their help providing us with a training and racing venue in great shape this season. 

Sunday: Classic racing up in saratoga at the annual Shen Classic.– On well groomed Classic tracks at the Saratoga Biathlon Center.

Cayuga had to cancel their race due to the weather.

Preregister to get race updates!

Next week we have NYSSRA Championships for XC and Biathlon up at Saratoga. This year we are excited to announce the Annual Saratoga Mini Marathon will be the NYSSRA Championship Skate race! Individual points leaders and Clubs can put in their final races and receive their awards. (Wilkinson Cub, Relay Champ, Club Banner, NYSSRA RED Group {that’s the overall top 30 by points} and NYSSRA Champion {top points per age group} Hats! We will also be holding a raffle with some fine wax and poles up for grabs. – See how you and your club are doing :here

After the 2017-18 NYSSRA XC season comes to a close there will still be racing opportunities:

Check our calendar for Biathlon (March 10th at Osceola), Ski -O, and the First ever: NordiX race in NYSSRA History! GHN-ADK Vauhti has Partnered with Maple Ski Ridge to design a fast fun course with unique terrain. Skiers will participate in Heats. Spectators will have a great view of the course and a nice warm lodge. NordiX races begin on a downhill section, then involve some turns, climb briefly, and a downhill finish. Super fun to participate in, quite possibly the most fun way to build your climbing and descending ability.

Wax those skis and See you on the Snow!
