Welcome to the first ever NENSA Virtual Rollerski Series Event!
This month we are 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 within close proximity to their homes – and are encouraged to complete the event solo or with support staff from within your own household. Distance (10+ feet – no drafting) must be maintained if skiing with others. //Rollerski Safety Rules//
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!
In honor of our 25th year
ALL NENSA MEMBERSHIP in May
is $25 ! ! !
Each entry will receive one raffle ticket (two tickets if you have renewed your 2021 NENSA membership) towards a growing prize pool provided by Swix, Enjoy Winter, Swenor, the Trapp Family Lodge and more.
Three categories to sign up: 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…). We’ve added a fourth category! “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.
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 despite our current travel and social distancing restrictions. 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 how many kilometers we can ski TOGETHER!!
