2021 Up & At Em’ Series

The Up and At ‘Em series is ON this year but it is Strava/solo style. Due to current restrictions on gatherings and not being able to use the inside of the Nordic Center, a 7:00am event is not possible. But – join Strava (it’s free) and race your friends all winter. We will post four different race loops and the Nordic Center will track of your results via Strava by age group in both classic and skate throughout the year.

Racers are encouraged to join the Up & At ‘Em Series ‘club’ on Strava where they can share their time and see who they are competing against. Racers will be asked to email their race file from their GPS device to the race director, Linsey Joyce.
