The 4th annual SWENOR CXC ROLLERSKI CUP will make it's next stop in Wausau (WI) this coming weekend.

"Grind Up Granite Rollerski Race" is this Sunday, August 28. Make your way up to Rib Mountain – a glacially eroded monadnock in central Wisconsin. Skate race at 9 am, Classic race at 10 am, and some skiers do both events!

Grind Up Granite Rollerski Race Race Divisions:  
Middle School, High School, Adult

The event will feature both disciplines (skate and classic) that are run as separate races. Athletes can do either race or both. The course will run from South Mountain School along the south side of Rib Mountain before turning onto Park Road and heading up to the observation tower, which is at the highest point on the hill. The skate race will be run first as an interval start, and the classic race will be run with small wave starts based on age group/division and gender. The final configuration of the wave starts will depend on total participation from the various categories.     

Individuals can register online at  
(There will be same-day sign-up)

This is a rough schedule, but we will have registration and race check-in open at 8:00 AM by the South Mountain Elementary school, north parking lot. The skate race will begin at 9:00 am as an interval start. The classic race will start approximately one hour later. Awards will take place at the school after all the races.  

Course Map:
A course map with an elevation profile can be found on Strava at  

Just as a note of caution, we do not want anyone roller skiing down the hill. Participants can walk down if they wish to, and there is a shortcut to the school, but transportation will be provided.  

If you want to drive to the top, the State Park will require a park pass for your vehicle, either a daily or annual pass.
