2018 LRNSC roller ski races

Give yourself a challenge - test your speed and skills.  In 2018 we're organising our London Series races as part of the British Roller Ski Series and three are GB championship races.  This autumn we're introducing the London Region Challenge Cup which is a series of three races on matched skating skis with equipment provided by The Rollerski Co.  Another addition is The Barnaby Norman Memorial Race for skiers Under 20 with three age categories and a course that will include an agility section to test all round skills.
Races are for all standards of skier - there's room on the track for seasoned racers and novices alike, and there are shorter distances for novices and juniors, or anyone who prefers that option.
Advance entry only - enter online now

You must enter online in advance as there will be no race entry on the day.

Race entry closing dates are shown below.

For the London Region Challenge Cup matched ski races, only 60 places will be available across all the race categories - race entry may close sooner if all places are sold.  Enter now to avoid disappointment!

*GB series race


  • You must enter online in advance, there will be no race entry on the day.  See the race entry closing dates above.
  • If you are not a member of an SSE affiliated club you must pay a £5 insurance supplement.


All races take place in west London at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit, Springfield Rd Hayes UB4 OLP - venue details and directions,  except on 3 November when the 1 hour London Region Challenge Cup race will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - see race details.


All races will be transponder timed.

NB On 20 October the 42km London Region Challenge Cup race will be on matched skating skis [Marwe 610s] within the Club's 4 Hour FT race so the cut off time will be the same for both events, ie four hours from the start, even if some competitors have not completed the full 42km. 

Alternatively if you want to ski less or further, or you want to use faster roller skis or your own skis, you may prefer to enter the 4 Hour FT event, you'll still get a timed result and the satisfaction of achieving your personal goal.


London Region Challenge Cup races are run on matched skis and there is no option to use your own equipment even if it is the same model. 

In all other races you can use any FIS compliant skis, including fast racing skis.  It is possible to hire equipment from the Club - please email the organiser before booking to confirm that we have the kit that you'd like to use. You also need to book equipment online in advance.

If you are hiring equipment from us please arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the race to collect it.

Please contact the race organiser Gerard Evans.
