December 24 Update

Bib Pickup and registration will be at the back of the chalet between 9AM and 10AM.  

Bake Sale! You’ll be burning lots of energy so don’t forget to refuel at the Bake Sale. All proceeds go to the NJDT.

Not racing and want to help out? Get in touch with an NJDT athlete on race day (you’ll find at least one of them at the bake sale table) and they’ll give you something to do.


Online Registration is closed, but you don't have to miss out on the fun!

Find 2 friends, some costumes, and come on out to Nakkertok on Boxing Day to celebrate the great snow and holiday season in a fun 3-person relay.  The Nakkertok Junior Development Team will organize this event, and proceeds of the race entry and bake sale will go to support Nakkertok’s junior and senior racers.
