Masters World Cup 2018 (MWC2018) comes to North Amer­ica’s back­yard Jan. 19-26, 2018 at Theodore Wirth Park in Min­neapo­lis, Minn. The MWC is an an­nual event hosted at dif­fer­ent ski venues around the world. This event is re­vis­it­ing the United States af­ter a decade, last here when the 2008 Masters World Cup was in Mc­call, Ind. The city of Min­neapo­lis is ex­pect­ing more than 1,000 com­peti­tors over 30 years of age from all over the world at the eight-day com­pe­ti­tion se­ries.

The MWC2018 planned by lo­cal or­ga­niz­ers at The Lop­pet Foun­da­tion and the Amer­i­can XC Skiers (AXCS) non-profit Masters’ as­so­ci­a­tion has been five years in the mak­ing, as all pre­pare for the most ded­i­cated Mas­ter ath­letes from nearly two dozen na­tions. Skiers rang­ing from 30 to 90+ years re­quire no qual­i­fi­ca­tion process, and the se­ries wel­comes all abil­i­ties. Rac­ers can ex­pect three In­di­vid­ual races and a Na­tional Team re­lay for all age/gen­der cat­e­gories. Other hap­pen­ings on the sched­ule in­clude open­ing and clos­ing cer­e­monies, so­cial events and medal cer­e­monies.

With less than a year un­til the races com­mence, many Masters skiers have be­gun dry­land train­ing for this pres­ti­gious event. Cen­tral Cross Coun­try Ski As­so­ci­a­tion (CXC) of­fers a va­ri­ety of pro­gram­ming op­tions to help Mas­ter skiers pre­pare for race sea­son, in­clud­ing daily train­ing plans, fitness test­ing, train­ing camps and tech­nique clin­ics. Look at the 2017 dry­land-sea­son sched­ule for train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to pre­pare for the big event!
