2016 London roller ski race series - enter online now

The calendar and online entry for the London Series roller ski races that LRNSC organises are available now.  Put the dates in your diary and enter the first race, 15km free technique or 7.5km junior/novice option.

This year there all race entries must be made online as there will be no race entry on the day.  This will enable our volunteer organisers will be able to focus on preparing the equipment and ensuring a prompt start.

New in the series in response to popular demand is the London Region Classic race, a one hour classic and 30 minute novice event, which will be held at Lee Valley VeloPark on 1st October - that gives you plenty of time to practice!

These races are all part of the British Roller Ski Series and three of them are also GB championship races.
