5km cross-country mass start run on challenging terrain followed by 6km rollerski skate pursuit with a total climb of almost 1000 feet. This event will measure your off-season fitness and will help to evaluate your training.

Similar events have been held across Europe for the past 10 years and have brought the best cross-country skiers in the World together to compete in the summer.

Events will provide cash prizes to competitors in open category (men's and women's) and awards to competitors in age group categories (men's and women's)

Summer Cross-Country Ski Championship is a fundraiser for 2005 U.S. Ski Team Olympic Qualifier Capitol Square Sprints race (www.capitolsquaresprints.org) along with the November Sprints race and demo day.

Summer Cross-Country Ski Championship was held first time in 2003 and brought top U.S. skiers, colligate skiers from Northern Michigan University and UW-Green Bay, high school and master skiers.

Generous sponsorship of 20 pairs V2 skate roller skies from Jenex Inc. will bring fair competition and will help to make it a friendly event for all.
