Moraloppet Ski for the Cause is Canceled.

UPDATE 3/10/21

We are sad to say that the 2021 Moraloppet Ski for the Cause has been canceled.

Due to the rain and warm weather, the trails at the Nordic Center are no longer viable to hold a ski race.

For those who have made donations to the Susan Love Foundation, we thank you and your donations will still be going to the organization.

For those of you who have registered for this year’s Moraloppet, you have  three options: 1.) hold your registration for the 2022 Moraloppet 2.) Donate your registration fees to the Vasaloppet and Dr. Susan Love Foundation or 3.) Request a refund for your registration fee. Contact the Vasaloppet office via email at information@vasaloppet.us with your preference.

This is been a very challenging year on many levels. We thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the trails next year.

 

UPDATE 2/28/21: The Moraloppet event has been rescheduled to Saturday March 20th and will proceed as planned at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center, same time, and same distances, beginning at 11:00 am.

The event offers  10.5 & 21km  races as well as a 5km tour.

Although the race will be a mass start, starting area is set so skiers  can maintain the required minimum six-foot social distancing.

COVID restrictions will also prevent an awards ceremony and pre-race access to the Nordic Center. Awards will be given to the overall first, second and third place finishers. The will be no age class awards this year.

Registration is available only online and will be open until 10:45am on the day of the event. Skiers, who are accustomed to registering via a paper registration on race morning, can use their mobile phones or a tablet to register when they arrive at the Nordic Center. Register Here

Part of your registration, plus other contributions, will be donated to the Dr. Susan Love Foundation in support of breast cancer research.

The start and finish is at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center.
