Loppet Age Gap Relays
Age Gap Relays. Freestyle tandem sprint relays for kids (age 15 and under) and adults. Youth and adult pairs compete together with each skiing two short legs – adult, child, adult, child. Age class, gender and awards based strictly on the age and gender of the child. Thus, a 13 year old girl paired with a 63 year old man would race in and be scored in the U14 girls category. Adults must be at least 10 years older than their youth team member.

Become a Age Gap Relay Partner
At the Loppet we make our best efforts to encourage youth to bring their parents out. But there are some youth who need a partner. Partners can work with a child at one event or, preferably, at a series of events over the year.
