Walk Around the Block – WAB Series

Out There Nordic will be hosting a local Walk Around the Block on October 2nd, 2022. The goal is to use pole hiking as a means of endurance training for a half/ full ski marathon, to get outside or for exercise. The key to this event is gradually building up miles or k’s prior to the big day. Out There Nordic will be hosting pole hikes from May to August. If the 28 mile Walk Around the Block is too much to bite off this season, please feel free to join us for the Pole Hike options.

There is a prize available to those who are committed to make themselves better. The first 8 participants that complete 3 of 5 hikes AND complete the Walk Around the Block with us will receive a Specialty Out There Nordic piece of clothing. Please note that there is a set course of 28 miles for the Walk Around the Block in the Blue Hills. This tried and true course involves blacktop, gravel roads and has some elevation gain.

GMVS Summer Camp

REFINE YOUR FOCUS!

For 2022 we have been invited to coach again the the GMVS Summer Camp in Vermont. We look to bring a small group of athlete from the Midwest to this event as we have since 2016. If this is of interest to you please email us by May 1stouttherenordic@gmail.com We will then get you more information & details, costs, etc.

 

Build training volume on foot and on rollerskis while exploring our local roads, mountains, trails, and rivers. Learn about strength and conditioning in our world-class Racing Performance Center, and prepare for excellence next winter with guidance from our highly talented coaching staff. The Camp will conclude with the 2022 App Gap Challenge Rollerski Race and a long distance adventure.

BIG NEWS!

Big Changes in 2022
Well not exactly sure where to begin but here we GO!
2021 marked 46yrs of the Family Business of Burnell’s Decor. For those of you who have been to our physical location you know that Out There Nordic & Burnell’s Decor have been under one roof for the past 12 yrs. Well 2021 brought to us the opportunity to SELL Burnell’s Decor and well, WE DID!
In 2022 Burnell’s is in the process of moving to a NEW location at
1124 Hammond Ave in Rice Lake. This NEW location will be open late Spring 2022. We want to Thank ALL of the folks whom have supported Burnell’s over the past 46yrs.

The BIG NEWS!

Out There Nordic will remain at it’s current location of 502 North Main St. in downtown Rice Lake and in the Spring of 2022 will be working on expanding to take on the full space in our Historic Location. Kris & I are excited to see where this goes. The Nordic Business has grown to a point that we need to help it grow into the next stage of it’s life. Now 12 yrs old we are excited to see what is happening and where things are going. As one of the top Madshus & Fischer Race Service dealers in the country we are working with those brands to take things to a NEW Higher level in 2022 and beyond. We are also working on a number of other GREAT PROJECTS in the shop and beyond that will come out during the 2022 Season! We have hired a NEW Web Crew that is working on some great things which will be launching later this Spring as well.
Stay Tuned for Exciting happenings and
THANK YOU to all of you Out There
who have helped things grow to where they are today!
It’s always great customer service. Out There Nordic is a excellent supporter of the local trail community. Thank you!- Jason
