2011-2012 TD Bank Eastern Cup

Link to View Prior Year's TD Bank Eastern Cup Details: 2010-11


The TD Bank Eastern Cup Series has been on the race calendar since the early years of NENSA, and is considered NENSA's signature race series. These races feature many of the nation's best cross-country skiers.  The Eastern Cup races offer competition for BKL, Junior, Senior and Master skiers, and double as the Junior Olympic Qualifyer races for the New England Junior Olympic Team. Licensed USSA members can earn National Ranking List points at any of this series desginated with "NRL" in in after the formats listing below, and FIS points at those with a "FIS" desgination.

 One great feature of the Eastern Cup is that it although it attracts elite skiers, is not just for the very fastest cross-country ski racers.  Athletes of all speeds get to compete side-by-side with some of the nation’s best, and there is masters seed group that allows those over thirty to race together.  NENSA also offers wax support at all of the Eastern cups for skiers who are competing without their coach onsite and need assistance. For more information about the TD Bank Eastern Cup Series, contact Janice Siblia at janice@nensa.net

Note: New this season is the addition of prize money at our Craftsbury and Maine weekend Eastern Cup races!
