Parallel 45 Tour
Sunday, March 15: 5:30 – 6:30 pm
The Trailhead, 1221 Theodore Wirth Pkwy
The Parallel 45 Tour is a non-competitive event in which the general public will be given the chance to ski on the FIS World Cup course. Skiers may ski the course as many or as few times as they would like in the half hour allotted to the Tour.
Skiers are encouraged to wear their most cherished bib from a race they have done previously. After the Tour a photo session should be organized for skiers with specific bibs (e.g. Birkie bibs, Olympic bibs, Vasaloppet bibs, etc…). Participants should check in at the registration office inside the Trailhead to receive a sticker to put on their bib to indicate they have registered and paid.
Spectating is free and open to the public.
IMPORTANT: Registration will close 30 minutes prior to race start to allow processing of entries for team scoring.
