Schedule

Due to field size and weather, schedule is subject to change. Prior to race weekend, the most up to date information will be posted at http://www.loppet.org. See the official start list for specific start times.

Official start list will be posted on Superior Timing superiortiming.com.

The official entry list will be available Thursday evening. Athletes are responsible for ensuring they have been registered for the proper event and that all their information is accurate. Official start lists for the Friday sprint will be posted Thursday evening after the coaches meeting.

NOTE: FIS, US Ski & Snowboard and CXC license holders will be seeded per their rankings. Non-ranked athletes will be seeded in the Open category in a separate event behind FIS, US Ski & Snowboard, and CXC license holders. Open, U20, U18, U16 athletes are required to have a US Ski & Snowboard membership. Citizen and non-licensed competitors will be included on the non-sanctioned start list and will have their own event start time.

All competitors must have a valid US Ski and Snowboard license and “Active” status FIS Code to be eligible for FIS points.

Per FIS rules, race officials will be enforcing the 83% classic pole length rule. Please ensure that you arrive at the start corral with sufficient time prior to the start time. For your reference, the athlete’s height will be measured with the race boots on and to the top of the uncovered head.
