Stick around with your family to enjoy the facility and the other events at Nordicfest!
The proceeds from each registration will be donated directly to the Genesee Valley Nordic Ski Patrol to help provide first aid and transportation to injured skiers and winter sports enthusiasts and to work with the management of areas served to provide trail safety, and to the RMSC Cumming Nature Center to conserve and develop new trails.
The Nordicfest 10K Snowshoe race will serve as the finale of the 2017 Goose Adventure Racing Snowshoe Series. Points will be earned at all 2017 Goose Adventure Racing Snowshoe races. In addition to prizes at each race, Overall Season point-leader prizes will be awarded at the season closer at the Cumming Nature Center.
Nordicfest is the annual fundraiser for the Genesee Valley Nordic Ski Patrol. Your participation in the Nordicfest 10K will help keep the trails at Cumming Nature Center safe for skiing, as well as the trails at Harriet Hollister Spencer Park (home of Frozen Assets), and Mendon Ponds Park.
