ABOUT CHATHAM RACE CLUB

Chatham Race Club is a team that competes in ski racing events at a local Regional level, and at all other levels, up to and including the National GBR Series. Our members span all age groups from the Under 10’s Mini categories right through to the Over 30’s Masters category.

The racing is fun, exciting, addictive and is a sport that differing abilities and age groups can participate in together. Most race events consist of single timed slalom runs with each racer going one at a time. So, although you are competing against other racers times, it’s really about you against the course! Some events include additional Dual Slalom races, which involve two identical slalom courses set next to each other and these races are about “first over the line” rather than against the clock. These races can also been run in teams as relay races and Chatham Race Club are the current Regional Champions in this event. Dual Slalom racing brings a different element to ski racing which is extremely exciting for both the racers and the spectators.

We are an open and friendly club, and we are always on the lookout for ambitious skiers to who want to be part of a winning team, and take part in our regular training sessions and participate in slalom races. The club has been established for many years, and has historically been one of the most successful on the various race circuits. If you would like to join the team fill in your Membership Application Form and we will be in touch.

OUR SESSIONS & RACES

CHATHAM TRAINING SESSIONS

The recent surface change at Chatham Ski and Snowboard Centre has seen us return to our natural HQ there. We run training sessions there every Monday night (check the calendar below) for club members, 6.30pm – 8pm at £15 per racer. We welcome all abilities of confident skier at the club, so if you are able to ski from the top of the slope and control your turns and speed, why not come along and give it a try. All we ask is that if you enjoy the sessions, you join the club and attend at least one session per month. And to compete in races for the Chatham Race Club of course!

LSERSA SUMMER SERIES

LSRESA runs a summer series each year. Race format is: three individual slalom runs, three individual head-to-head dual slaloms and club- and fun-team dual slaloms. Trophies are awarded at each event for top three in age group, based on combined best two times from the individual slalom runs. There are also overall trophies for each group for the season. This is based on points, which are earned based on age-group position at each individual race, together with the individual head-to-heads. A racer must score points in three races to be eligible for the overall, and points are taken from the best four events.
