The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is excited to host the 2019 U.S. Cross Country Championships January 3 through January 8, 2019. We cannot wait to show off our little corner of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom to the U.S. racing community. 

Racing kicks off on Thursday, January 3rd with a 10k/15k classic individual start competition. Friday brings the first of two sprints, this one in the classic format, on our 1.5k course. After a day off on Saturday, racers will compete in freestyle mass start competitions on Sunday, January 6th - 30k for men, 20k for women, 10k for junior boys, and 5k for junior girls.

Sunday evening we invite all registered coaches and athletes to a banquet where we will recognize race winners and name the World Junior and U18 Scando Cup teams. The banquet is limited to the first 300 registrants.

Tuesday, January 8th wraps up the series with freestyle sprints.
