26 Feb 2016 … 28 Feb 2016

Kawartha Nordic is excited to be hosting the 2016 Ontario Midget Championships on the February 27–28 weekend. This two-day event, offers the chance for skiers of all ages to see what cross country ski racing is all about, and we are hoping you and your family will come as spectators, volunteers or racers.

While this is an Ontario Championships, for many of the athletes this will be their first ski race, and as such is structured to be a fun and easy-going event. There will be classic and skate ski races in both individual and team relay formats.

We encourage all male skiers born in 2001–2006, female skiers born in 2002–2006 and paranordic skiers born in 2000–2006 that are members of a Canadian nordic ski club to signup and race.
