  • Nakkertok Alumni Candy Cane Cup Dec.16-17

    The Nakkertok Alumni Candy Cane Cup is an early season, CPL points race.  The idea behind this event is to host a high level race in Eastern Canada in December so that our athletes do not need to travel west and race at altitude in order to test themselves prior to qualifying events that are usually held in early January.  The alumni component is that this race is an opportunity for parents of past racers to come together, re-live old times, and meet the club and the new crop of skiers.


    Saturday – Open (M/W) Category Sprint, free technique
    Sunday – Midget to Masters interval start Classic race distances 2.5 K to 7.5 K


     Please find all the race details in the RACE NOTICE   (English)      (Français)

    This is a LOW-FLUORO Event for ALL CATEGORIES


    • one race $20
    • two races $35
    • Additional costs apply to those who do not have a CCC race license and Quebec residents without a SFQ license
