8km Thunder Bay Pulp and Paper Family Mini-Loppet
Classic or Skate Technique
Start Time: Following the 20 km start [Approximately 10:20 am]
This family oriented distance is perfect for recreational skiers, too. Everyone will enjoy the out and back route on the scenic Marie Louise Lake park roads. Participants will love the snacks(cookies!) at one checkpoint and complete their ski at the same finish line as the competitive distances. All skiers are timed and listed in the results (unless otherwise selected on the registration form), and will receive a 2024 chocolate medal!
Awards will be presented to the first three male and female finishers, age 13 and under, to cross the finish line (not based on chip time).
Chariots (pulks) will be permitted. Do not register the child in the chariot, just the adult skier. Start time will be approximately 10:30am following the last 8km wave. Chariot users are asked to use caution on the two-way portion of the 8km route and particularly at the finish line.
