XC Ottawa is an elite racing team helping to develop athletes for
national and international competitions. The team is committed to help make Ottawa a training area of choice for cross-country ski racers, to
promote active lifestyles, and contribute to the overall growth of
cross-country skiing. With that in mind we are happy to provide the
greater Ottawa-Gatineau skiing community with a few racing opportunities each winter.
All the details are in the following PDFs...
Beside the Gatineau Loppet (formerly Keskinada) and the Canadian Ski Marathon Ottawa-Gatineau hosts many races and time trials every year! If you are planning to do either of the BIG 2, you should consider a few of the other races for your preparations.
The local race calendar is maintained by the NCD (National Capital Division of Cross-Country Ontario). Many thanks to John Langstone who has maintained this webpage for as long as there has been pine tar.
