First timers or seasoned veterans alike can race any or all of the Canadian Cup events for Winter 2016/17. We have pan-event support from a number of sponsors arranged and would like particularly to thank Buff Canada and MEC for their commitment.
2016/17 Title Sponsor
Buff Canada is the title sponsor for the 2016/17 Race Calendar. We thank them for their support.
The National Cup Race Series
“New this winter will be our attempt to coordinate all registration through Zone4. Parallel events in the USA, as part of the USSMA series, and possibly some qualifying format races as outlined on the SkimoEast calendar, can count towards an athlete’s national ranking.
