Back by popular demand, this is the event that gets people thinking about rolling every spring. We want to shift the paradigm of rollerski from being just a training mechanism — reach out to friends or connect with new ones to plan an adventure. Ever see a road that was just calling for a ski? Or maybe there is a bike path that you had always wanted to check out. We want you to challenge yourself and utilize rollerskis as a fun tool and build the social energy of our summertime programs. We love the stories we’ve shared for the past two years!
#25KinMay is free – simply get out there and report your ski (or ski walking or biking) data to us here. The event is for everyone and based primarily on participation. There will be raffle prizes and awards for fast times, exceptional routes and reporting. The number one rule remains: BE SAFE out there. Skiers must select terrain suitable for their skill level.
NENSA’s mission is to provide excitement to our broader cross country skiing community and continue the momentum of NENSA’s Rollerski Programming. We look forward to unveiling our 2022 Rollerski Race Series this month and visiting clubs throughout the East this summer!
Recruit friends to join you – use #25KinMay for motivation to get rolling!
As part of the Challenge we encourage you to develop your network on the Pastimes app (https://www.pastimes.io/). Download the app, join the NENSA Group, or create your own.

My Own Pace or “Let’s Walk”: This is the touring class or for folks who might not be comfortable on rollerskis and want to ski walk (or bike).
BKL: rollerski (ski walk or bike) 10k in May whether in one go or split up into multiple segments
Keep Up With Beckwith: This category is geared towards masters skiers to keep pace with our Competitive Program Director as he challenges himself to 250km of skiing throughout the month
