Frisco Nordic Center

Man Nordic skiing in race at Frisco Nordic Center

COVID19 Update: We continue to monitor regulations and recommendations regarding group gatherings during these unprecedented times. We are working with our local permitting agencies as well as following guidance from Summit County Public Health. The health and safety of our race participants, staff, volunteers, and the Frisco community is our top priority.

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 can compete in this online format with a marked course from Monday at 7:00am – Wednesday at 5:00pm. There are virtual races scheduled with varying distances:

  • Race #1: January 25-27, 2021 – 6.5km
    • Strava Segment/Course Map
    • Course Description: start at the Nordic Center>M’Rezy>RJ’s Vista>Ballfanz Blitz>Rec Path>Crown Point Road>Jody’s Nugget>Rieschels East (NEW trail)>Olympian’s Link>RJ’s Vista>Kim’s Chase>M’Rezy>finish at the Nordic Center
  • Race # 2: February 8-10, 2021 – 7.5km
  • Race #3: February 22-24, 2021 – 7.5km
  • Race #4: March 8-10, 2021 – 10km

You can choose to skate or classic each race; you will be asked this question when you register online.  We ask that all racers ski the course during daylight hours, and you must compete within the allotted timeframe for your time to be included in our race results.

Race Courses

All races will range in distance from 4 mile to 7 miles. All races will take place on groomed Frisco Nordic Center trails. The course will be marked with red arrows on trees or trail signs adjacent to junctions. Racers are highly encouraged to study and/or pre-ski the course before a timed effort as there will NOT be V-boards on the trail directing racers.

Race Waiver

Please click here to sign the race waiver (select ‘special event’ when it asks what type of ticket this waiver is for.)  You only need to fill out this waiver one time for the entire series.


This Series will be self-timed. All racers must use a GPS device, a watch or app on their phone, to record and map their run. 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.


Results will be posted by 5:00pm the Thursday following the race.
