The Wednesday Night Race Series, hosted by Red River Nordic has been a staple event for the x-country community in Winnipeg for years. The Series provides a fun, non-intimidating competition environment each week at Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Red River Nordic uses the Wednesday Night Race Series to excite youth athletes about racing, to maintain race readiness for more senior athletes, and to provide a casual event for all skiers to enjoy.

We encourage all cross country skiers, young and old, to come out and enjoy the trails with us.


The Wednesday Night Race Series takes place at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.

Covid-19 Precautions

As per CCSAM regulations, all participants, whether athlete, volunteer or spectator 12 years of age and over must be vaccinated.  

We will not be hosting pre-competition meetings for the 2021/2022 season to avoid congregating in close quarters. Competition course info will be emailed out to the participants on Tuesday evening.    

Upon arrival at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre on competition day, the start list will be posted at the entrance so athletes may pick up their bib and proceed outside to warm up.

Start line bib pickup will be available for those electing to skip coming inside to pick up their bib.


Each competition costs $5.00 plus an online processing fee, registration for each race is made available on Zone4. Announcements for the opening of registration will be publicized on our website. Discounted season registration is available on Zone4 at the start of the season for athletes wanting to register for multiple races at once and save on weekly processing fees. Signing up for all races at once will save a participant over 50% of the cost of 12 individual weekly registration. Registration closes at 5pm on the day of the race.


We use to collect your registration details, and accept your payment.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many volunteer roles to fill each night. If you are an available parent or guardian, family or friend, we highly recommend coming out to help support the club.
