May 1 - May 31
Back by popular demand — our first ever NENSA Virtual Rollerski Event is back.
While you might not be as distanced as you were a year ago — this month we again focussing on returning to rollerskis and we want you to challenge yourself!
This event is for everyone and based primarily on participation, although there will be prizes for fast times, exceptional routes and reporting. The number one rule is: BE SAFE. Skiers must select terrain suitable for their skill level.
The goal of the event 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 2021 Rollerski Race Series during May! Anyone can compete – recruit friends from outside New England to join you – haven’t rollerskied in 12 years? … this is your event! Let’s see if we can top the 13,126 kilometers we skied together in 2020!!
Entries can be submitted at any point between May 1st and May 31st. NENSA will display and showcase results throughout the challenge — videos and pictures are encouraged with each event submission. Skiers can enter multiple times – we’ll have and Ironman and Ironwoman award for those special endurance types!
As a promotion we started last year
ALL NENSA MEMBERSHIP in May
is $25 ! ! !
Each entry will receive one raffle ticket (two tickets if you have renewed your 2022 NENSA membership) towards a growing prize pool.
Final details to come shortly!
In 2020 we had four categories: Rockstar (for folks who want to ski the full 25km in one go), Speedy Repeater (this could be a stab at the fastest time, or someone who wants to break up 25km into more manageable pieces), and My Own Pace (This is the touring class. Or for folks who might not be comfortable on rollerskis and want to participate but by other means, ie. on foot, bike…). “Keep Up With Beckwith” – this category is geared towards masters skiers to keep pace with our Competitive Program Director as he shoots for roughly 200km of skiing throughout the month.
Instructions for submitting results will be provided with registration. Be creative and share your story – the training season is young – Let’s Have Fun!!
