The Maine Event: Agility Sprint Festival

October 27

Registration is now OPEN on SkiReg.

On Saturday morning October 27th NENSA will be hosting the first open Rollerski Cross Country Cross event in the world.  This exciting summer version of Cross Country Cross builds on aspects of both sprinting and agility.  The event will take place at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine.

The course will be set on a 400 meter loop including 3 ramps (Bicycle, Speed Whoop and Step Down Jump) and other agility components including: 180 into backwards skiing, stop and start, Nokian Tyres – Figure 8, one-legged balance, grass skiing and several turning features including slalom.  Skiers should be prepared for a course under 2 minutes in length – with sections of open skiing including a finish straight. All skiers will participate in instruction and qualification.  The top 16 Open and Junior skiers will advance to single elimination rounds – advancing by heat time.  H2H competitors will start and finish on opposite sides of the event “oval.”
