Participants of our 30km loppet can ski this as an individual or as a two-person relay team.  Individuals participate in a skiathlon comprised of 15km classic, transitioning in the stadium to 15km free technique.  The relay has the first person skiing the 15km classic, tagging off to the second person who will ski the 15km free technique.

The 30km course is 2 x 7.5km Telemark trail (classic leg) plus 15km Fern Creek Trail (free technique).

There are also 200 meter, 1 km, 3 km, 6 km and 7.5 km events for 3 to 17 year olds, and a 7.5 km recreational race for adults.

Back again this year is the popular “race within a race”. There will be special prizes awarded for the overall King and Queen of the Mountian (1 km classic hill climb) and the KamikazHe and KamikazShe run (1.5 km free downhill). We have tightened up the Kamikaze run this year so you can really test your nerve to clock the top speed!
