LRNSC update - September
Next Club events
The ski season is racing towards us so it's time to ramp up the training - here's a reminder of our upcoming events:
22 September - roller ski course, race and practice session at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit
Improve your roller skiing, or learn to roller ski, on the Club's course
with groups for newcomers and improvers - you can find out more
and book online
. It's always good to get a few tips and check you haven't picked up any bad habits over the summer!
The next race in the GB roller ski series
is the Skiathlon which starts at 1400. You ski 2 x 7.5km, first in classic technique then skating, and there's a 2 x 4.5km option for juniors/novices - enter online now
. It really helps the race organiser if you enter in advance and it saves you money. If you want to hire equipment please arrive early.
You can also use the track for your own practice
for a contribution towards track hire - you can pay this online
too [scroll down the page for practice sessions].
28 September - ski fitness training in Richmond Park
Following the success of her Spring class, Lorraine Field is running the first of two autumn sessions - email
to find our more or book a place. Expect to work hard!
Sore feet when you roller ski?
That's no fun!
Specialist sports socks can really help make a difference and are worth the extra. And if you want to make September's racing [and October's 4 hour event event
] easier, how about some faster rollers too? There's a new discount for members
that gives you a free pair of Craft Cool nordic ski socks [worth £9.50] when you buy new equipment [members need to email us
for this new offer code]. Don't forget SkiFit and Euroski also offer members good equipment discounts
so you have a great range to choose from.
Wessex & Army Sprints 29 September
Enjoy roller ski racing?
Join Club members going to these sprint races organised by Wessex Biathlon & Nordic Ski Club
at Castle Combe circuit in Wiltshire. You can enter as an individual or, if you're a Club member, as part of the Club team - Des Goff is coordinating our arrangements so Club members please contact him
asap [no later than 18/9] if want to join in.
Want an intensive weekend of roller ski tuition?
Roller ski boot camp 5-6 October
Beginner, intermediate or advanced skier - you'll give your skiing a serious boost and have a great time - sign up for Snowsport England's autumn course
with top coaches before 21/9. The quality of coaching really makes this trip to Lancaster worthwhile.
Happy autumn roller skiing!
