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.

Trails Open to All, Vasaloppet and Birkie Virtual Skiers Welcome.

 

The trails at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center are open for all to enjoy. We welcome all Vasaloppet AND all Birkie virtual skiers! While trails are open to the public and there are no fees, we would greatly appreciate your donation to help maintain the trails and facilities. There are donation boxes at the Nordic Center, or you can make an online donation right here.

You can still register for any of the Vasaloppet virtual ski events through March 6th. You will need to complete your virtual ski race by March 7th. Even if you have already skied in any of the in-person Vasaloppet ski races, you can still sign up for any of the virtual ski events as well. Heck, why not add another race to your list of accomplishments?! While you will not earn a Dala Horse trophy, you will receive a finishers medal for that race.

Results and Awards.

Results for all races can be found online right here.

As outlined in our COVID safety plan, this year we do not have a Celebration tent, and we will not be holding an awards ceremony. We will, however, still be having all of our age class awards as we do every year. We will just not be awarding them on race weekend.

Since we will be having a rolling start to the races, the final results and award standings will not be determined until all skiers have finished their race. Age class winners who earn a Dala Horse trophy will be notified by the Vasaloppet office. Arrangements will be made to have the winners pick up their horses at the Vasaloppet office, at one of several ski shops throughout Minnesota, or in special circumstances, they will be mailed.

All skiers will get their finishers medal at the finish line. When you cross the finish line a kranskulla will direct you to the station to pick up your medal.
