Hi Junior Nordicers!
This upcoming Sunday, February 13th, is the next AMH Anchorage Cup race of the season. This weekend’s race is a sprint relay taking place at Kincaid. This is a freestyle event which means that skiers can choose whether they’d like to ski skate or classic technique.

Junior Nordic skiers can race in one of the adult races or the shorter youth format. The adult races are two skiers x 2km x 2 laps. The youth race format is two skiers x 2km x 1 lap.
- Men (2x2x2): 12pm
- Women (2x2x2): 12:30pm
- Youth (2x2x1): 1pm (Recommended for Polar Cubs and Otters)
- Mixed (2x2x2): 1:30pm
To reduce race day chaos, it helps to find a relay partner ahead of time — your regular Junior Nordic group is a great place to find a partner, but if you don’t find one ahead of time, coaches will help you find a partner on the day of the race.
Please arrive at Kincaid at least an hour before your skier’s race. Junior Nordic coaches will be onsite to assist with bib pickup, finding relay partners, and warm-ups. Please gather in the stadium near the tunnel — look for the Ready 2 Race flag!
