20km - Skate Technique Event
20km - Classic Technique Event - *New This Year*
Start Time: 10:05/10 am EST
The 20 km course circles Marie Louise Lake and finishes back at the start area. The park road features gently rolling terrain and is groomed for both classic and skate technique. It is wide enough to allow participants to ski with friends and family, but still maintains the wilderness feel the Loppet is known for. Jackrabbits who have completed the Mini-Loppet and are looking for more of a challenge will want to register for this event, as will beginning to intermediate skiers who have moved beyond the 8km distance. Competitive athletes who don't want to enter the 50km event can still challenge themselves and race the 20km distances.
Awards will be presented to the top three male and female finishers to cross the finish line (not based on chip time) in both Classic and Skate Technique.
The first female and male in 5 year age categories will be recognized on the Loppet website results page.
All skiers will receive a 2024 chocolate medal!
