Calendar of Races

Upcoming Races - 2019 Events



Once again, we will be having the very popular Loppet Point Series of races this year. Your time will be adjusted according to the age related handicapping tables and the fastest male and female skier will receive 100 points. Each skier will receive points according to the percentage his/her age adjusted time is behind the fastest skier.
1.  We will count the 5 best age adjusted races for each skier.
2.  A skier must include at least 2 races from the Canadian/Ontario Masters Championships Feb 8-10.
3. A skier must be a member of the Ontario Masters Cross Country Ski Association at the time of the event to have his/her points tabulated for the event. An exception will be made for a skier who has never been a previous member of the association.
