Boundless enthusiasm

We are back to hill bounding this fall. Every Tuesday night until the snow falls. Meet up at the Lake Riley parking lot at Cobbs Hill at 6PM. Headlamps are useful. Slightly shorter than classic length poles are optimal. We’ll do an easy 1.25 mile warm up run, some dynamic stretching and Spenst drills and then a mix of longer (1:30) and shorter (0:30) bounds. Cool down run after. Aim for 1:00-1:15 for the session. Follow us on Facebook at Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation for up to the minute details.

Tuesday Night Workouts

Spring is here, but Tuesday night workouts continue. Right now we are focusing on building up double poling endurance, a good complement to summer foot based sports like running and cycling. We meet at the Erie Canal on Edgewood. The canal path is pancake flat and has no traffic so it’s a great place to learn to roller ski. Time is 6PM.


1) Must wear bike helmet.

2) All skill levels are welcome at all workouts. 

3) We will set up the workout so that while everyone will train together, everyone can go at their own pace. No need to wait for or struggle to keep up with the group.

Ski race rescheduled!

The Poronkusema pursuit is back on! The poor deer can only hold it in for so long. Details for the 2/14 date are at the youth skiing site

We’ll try again next year

We’ve decided to cancel Sunday’s race. Stand Up paddle board season starting soon.

Poronkusema 2/7

In this winter of discontent, racing is never guaranteed, but so far all indications are a go for Sunday as planned.
