Wednesday Night Race Series


The MEC Wednesday Night Race Series, hosted by Red River Nordic has been a staple event for the x-country community in Winnipeg for years. This racing series is the longest running multi-race ski series in Canada.  The Series provides a fun, non-intimidating competition environment each week at Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Red River Nordic uses the MEC Wednesday Night Race Series to excite youth athletes about racing, to maintain race readiness for more senior athletes, and to provide a casual event for all skiers to enjoy.

We encourage all cross-country skiers, young and old, to come out and enjoy the trails with us.
