As the 2012 season ends and the start of the 2013 training season begins, CXC would like to congratulate all the Nordic Rocks participants on an outstanding season. With a total of 11,133 kilometers logged and 113 participants we nearly reached the 100 K/person milestone.
On an individual basis Adam Glueck skied a whopping 1,085 K with Lucia Del Rincon Martinez, Zander Martin and Evan Nichols (BeeBug) putting in a very respectable 400-450 K.
At the regional level, NENSA recorded a massive 8,148 K followed by CXC, FWNSEA and RMN. New Hampshire take the honors for the most skied kilometers at over 3,559 followed by New England at 1,866 and Vermont at 1549. However, FWNSEA and RMN had the highest average per person at 153 and 137 respectively.
Kudos goes to all the support that clubs provide with special mention to Ford Sayre and Putney of the Bill Koch League recording 1,873K and 1,330K respectively and the mid-wests Hilltoppers of Ohio sandwiched in between with 1,516 K.
If you have not done so already, count up your kilometers and follow the instructions outlined in STEP 3 of the program to get your COOL medal!
The award medals are based on your age group and the amount of kilometers you ski.
What is Nordic Rocks?
Our interactive children’s website allows anyone to keep track of kilometers skied in the wintertime. Think of it as a training log! This is not a competitive program, but a fun way to set ski goals for the winter, work to achieve them and earn rewards.
* The great news is that it’s not just for nordic skiing! We offer a conversion chart to help you keep track of all the ways you’re active in the winter.
“Nordic Rocks” © is a collaboration among four ski regions and we invite you to join Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC), New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA), Far West Nordic Ski Education Association (FWNSEA) and Rocky Mountain Nordic (RMN) as we all keep track of how much we ski.
