Paddy Pallin Junior 2015

The Paddy Pallin Junior cross country ski race will be held at 11am on Saturday 27 June 2015 at the Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter, Perisher Valley. The race is for children up to 16 years of age (for the 2015 race you must be under 16 years at 31 December 2014).

The Paddy Pallin Junior has been a Perisher Valley event for many years with our records suggesting this is the 57th year. It is the OLDEST cross country ski event in Australia (older than the KAC and older than the Paddy Pallin Classic (now replaced by the Snowy Mountains Classic) – and it’s just for the YOUNGEST skiers.

The Paddy Pallin Junior provides an opportunity for juniors to try cross country skiing. It’s a fun ski race (no prizes for first, second and third) where everyone gets a certificate! You can ski in it if you are only two years old or over fifteen, as long as you were under 16 years at 31 December 2014. The distance you ski depends on your age and snow conditions. The older skiers (14/15 year olds) ski up to 5 kilometres, while the younger skiers (3/4 year olds) ski only a few hundred metres.

In 2015 the race will be held at the Perisher Valley Nordic Shelter (snow permitting). After the race the usual festivities – poppers and hot dogs and spot prizes – will be held in or around the Nordic Shelter. When that’s over there’ll be fun and games, including an on skis jelly snake hunt!

Entry is on the day, and there’s no charge. Just turn up to register and pick up your bib at the Nordic Shelter from about ten o’clock on Saturday morning 27th June 2015. Come and give it a go!
