Teacup Nordic x XC Oregon PDX Fall Workouts are all-age, all-ability workouts on four Saturday mornings from mid-October until mid-November at Portland-area city parks. Workouts are 90 minutes long and take place rain or shine. Most sessions will be led by coaches and athletes from the XC Oregon race program.
You do NOT need to attend all or most sessions -- just come whenever you can. Please spread the word and let's have the biggest turnout ever! Purchase a 2020-21 Teacup Nordic Season Pass before attending your first workout and make a donation to XCO to help cover the travel and administrative expenses for setting up and leading these workouts.
Every workout includes a menu of ski-specific strength training, ski imitation exercises, technique drills, and more. No special equipment is required and you will not have to run to participate. You go as easy or hard as you like. We stay in small areas so no one has to wait and no one gets left behind. The program is suitable for beginner recreational skiers thru expert racers.
For more information, including dates and locations go to the XC Oregon website.
