Nordic Meisters

Tuesdays January 7th – March 10th, 2020
9:00 am – 5:30 pm

No Meisters on Tuesday Feb. 18, 2020.

Potluck on Friday March 20, 2020

The largest (and most fun) weekly cross-country race series in the country!

It’s our 25th year! Thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs! The series consists of eight weeks of timed runs with the six best times selected for series-end standings. With an adjustment system, all ages can compete on a level playing field. Check in every week at the rentals desk on the first floor to get your bib number. Start at the timing building in the stadium area between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:30 pm. All participants must check in with the volunteer timing crew prior to starting their timed runs.

All runs must be started by 5:30 pm. Results are emailed and posted on the website Wednesday morning and published in the Conway Daily Sun on Fridays.

Choose between the long (5.0km) or short (2.7km) course in the classic or skate technique—or ski them both! An awards party/potluck will be held on Friday, March 20th. The top three skiers in each class will receive an award. All participants completing six out of eight weeks are entered into a prize raffle. (Must be present to win, or have a really good friend willing to pick it up.) You don’t need to be fast to win your share of the prize pool!

NEW in 2020! We are bringing back Snowshoe racing! The Snowshoe Meisters will start at 1pm and then joined by the Fatbike division at 3:30pm.

Headlamps required for all racers leaving later than 4pm. Helments required for all fatbikers. 

Nordic Meisters can join the Snowshoe and Fatbike divisions with no additional charge! Snowshoe and Fatbike divisions share the same 3 mile (4.9km course). 

ALL age-graded racing results will be posted and email on Wednesday morning.
