MadNorSki has the mission to share the passion of cross country skiing with others – “Cross Country Skiing for Everyone!” And this includes racing! During the months of January and February, the club organizes races at Elver park on Tuesday nights at 7 pm.  We are excited to be able to host our Tuesday Night race series again this winter 2021-22, after a year hiatus because of Covid. Currently the club does not have a race director, but we will carry on as best as we can!  (And if you are interested in being our new race director, please contact Tamara at )

2022 Race Series

Come join us for the Tuesday Night Race series–First time racers to experienced Birkie racers are welcome! We will announce the race a week prior to the race date.  Club members will be emailed an invite to register and information will be posted on the website race page. The races this year will be no cost for club members and we will ask for a suggested $10 donation for non-members.  We might even try other venues–perhaps a moonlight race at Odana one week?

We ask that skiers register online in advance! When you register, please indicate your event, for example 5k Women’s classic, 10k classic, 10k Men’s skate, etc. Races are dependent on good snow conditions and may need to be cancelled. Any cancelation will be done 24 hours before. Please check here for updates.
