About Rochester Nordic Racing
Founded to facilitate the improvement of Nordic skiers within the greater Rochester area and Mid-Atlantic Division.
In the summer of 2008 the junior program was launched and was tremendously successful. An astounding 80% of the athletes from the summer program qualified for the 2009 Mid-Atlantic Junior Olympic Team and all of the athletes qualified for Eastern High School Championships.
In the fall of 2008 the senior program was launched. The senior program is made up of post-graduate through master’s level racers with a focus on local, regional and national level competitions. In the winter of 2009 the senior team burst on to the local scene winning several races including the Empire State Games Open Division Classic, Skate, and Pursuit races going 1st and 2nd in each. Empire State Games Open Division Biathlon Distance and Relay Race. The senior team also placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the senior division (21-29) at the Fischer Loppet 40k.
As we move forward and continue to grow and succeed new and exciting programs will form as well our relationship with local high schools and ski clubs. I look forward to the future and welcome the challenges and excitement that it will bring!!
