The New England Marathon Event Series welcomes skiers of all levels to test their endurance, or just make the most of a winter’s day on courses ranging from 25km to 50km. Elite racers and recreational touring skiers alike are invited to enjoy a traditional ski marathon experience and some of the finest skiing in New England! Come join in the fun!
In an effort to limit interstate travel NENSA will not be incentivizing a Marathon Challenger Award for the 2020-21 season. Please see some of the marathon opportunities available below for this season. All of these races are part of our Popular Race Series and will score points towards Zak and Club / A Hall Mark of Excellence awards.

With continued support from Toko and Swix, NENSA will continue to offer the New England Marathon Series Challenger Award. Racers who are current NENSA members will need to complete a minimum of four races to be counted for the Marathon Challenger Award. M1-M6 must race Full Marathons. M7+ have option to ski ½ or Full Marathon, with the exception of Freeman Frost where everyone skis 22km.
Use of the M7+ cut-off aligns with AXCS and World Masters standards.
