The National Capital Region’s oldest and largest junior ski race!  

The Nakkertok Junior Championships (also known as the Cookie Race), will be held at Nakkertok South Stadium in Cantley, Quebec, just minutes from Ottawa and Gatineau. The Cookie Race appeals to young skiers of all abilities and ages (3-20).

Almost as old as Nakkertok itself, it is steeped in tradition, remembered with affection and designed for fun.

The race is named for the prize that every skier receives at the finish line.

It’s a great place to get a first taste of what cross country ski racing is all about and to test the developing skills of more experienced racers.

We welcome all young skiers!
