The Nordic racing season began a little over two weeks ago on the ski trails of Michigan Technology University in Houghton, Michigan with the first Junior National Qualifier and CXC Youth Cup events of the season.
Coming Up Next
Birkie Trailhead JNQ and Cross Country Ski Races
January 21-22, 2017 / Birkie Trailhead (Cable, WI)
Competition Categories: Youth, Juniors, Seniors, Masters
Registration for JNQ races typically closes on the Tuesday before the race. Register early!
The event is a great opportunity to score points for Junior Nationals (March 3rd-11th, Whiteface Mountain, NY). It also institutes the same course profile as the Wisconsin High School State Championships making it a valuable race preview for Wisconsin high school skiers.
The weekend starts Saturday with an individual classic distance event and concludes on Sunday after the freestyle mass start event.
Additional Midwest and Great Lakes Junior National Team qualifying races this season are the Hilltop Invitational, Marshall School Trails, Duluth, MN (January 28-29th) and the Mayor’s XC Challenge, Theodore Wirth Park, Minneapolis, MN (February 18-19th).
The Birkie Trailhead events will need many volunteers for a variety of tasks. Your help is greatly appreciated!
