River View Loppet course changes for 2020

Late this fall, we completed about a mile and a half of new trail, tentatively called the Nebagamon creek loop. With the new trail availability, we decided to change our race courses for this year’s Loppet to 10 K and 24 K events. Whereas in the past, we completed one or two laps of the course for the 12 K or 24 K events we will now do a single 10K lap for the classic and skate short event on a different course than we used before.

The 24 K event is the same distance as always, but racers will do a 6K ‘Hot’ lap, come back to the start area and then do an 18 K second lap before finishing. The new course should be more challenging and also more fun with the new trails adding new dimensions to the race course.

Prices remain the same as last year.
