Everyone is invited!

If you watched the 2002 Olympics at Soldier Hollow, you may have admired the world’s best athletes as they raced 50km on the final day of the Games, and wondered just how challenging it would have been to complete that course.  Well, now you have your chance to experience it first-hand!  This year the GRAND TOUR of Soldier Hollow will be run a course between 12-16k.

 

Come out and race, ski with friends, challenge yourself to skiing longer than you ever have, and most importantly come out for a great time on amazing snow.  Chose to ski 1, 2 or 3 laps on this challenging course.

 

Everyone is invited to take part!  To participate, just purchase a trail pass (or use your annual pass) at the Nordic center on the lower level of Soldier Hollow’s Lodge, and then ski down to the Competition building in the stadium to register in the race office.  Let the race office know your name, the number of laps you’re planning to ski, pick up your bib and head to the start line in the biathlon stadium.  No times, no prizes, just the pride of finishing the course.

 

Any questions, feel free to reach out to Josh Korn – jkorn@uolf.org
