Welcome to the “Wilkinson Cup” championship series!
All NYSSRA Nordic races will be scored for the traditional NYSSRA points series (see points series rules). However, in addition, it will be scored using more of a performance-based system (see description below). Your scoring total will be dependent on your best 3 races including the NYSSRA Championship Race. The athlete at the top of the Wilkinson Series will win an engraving on the “Wilkinson Cup” trophy and the corresponding prize package and cash prize. A cash prize will be given to the top male and female points earner.
The Wilkinson Cup series is named after longtime organizer and leader in the NYSSRA community, Larry Wilkinson. For decades he helped maintain the NYSSRA race season, Empire State Games, and sanctioning agreements for our race organizers. NYSSRA Nordic thanks Larry and his family for their dedication to nordic skiing at all levels in New York.
