KINROSS Fort Knox Town Race Series

The Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks’ Town Race Series began in the 1996-97 season as a five race series. Over more than two decades more than 100 Town Series races have been held, and the number of finishers numbers well over 10,000.

This series, now consisting of four races,  occurs on Saturdays from November through January. Events are held in four different formats:  mass start, interval start, sprint and ski-cross with two races each in classic technique and free technique (skating).  Competition takes place in five age groups: Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6, Grades 7-8, High School/Adult. There’s something for everyone!

How to Enter

Elementary, junior high, and high school competitors should enter through their school programs or coaches if there is a program at their school or if they are part of a club program. There is no entry fee for student competitors.
