Spokane Nordic Challenge Loppet

20 / 30 / 50 km

Sunday March 5, 2017 Challenge Loppet 

The Spokane Nordic Challenge Loppet has options for 20, 30 or 50 kilometer distances. "Loppet" is the traditional term for a long-distance cross country ski event that can be either recreational or competitive.

The Challenge Loppet is an ideal end-of-season training goal. Pick a distance that seems right for you, then aim for speed or set a relaxed pace with friends. The 30km course includes the stunning views from the entire outer perimeter of the Ski Park. The 50 km course is a combination of the 20 km and 30 km loops.

To train for the Challenge Loppet, check out the new Perimeter Challenge.

Proceeds benefit Spokane Nordic Ski Association programs, trail maintenance and improvement.
