CLASSIC SKI RACES - THE NORTH AMERICAN VASA
Sponsored by Short's Brewing Company and Chemical Bank
The challenging courses will capture the rich heritage of traditional cross-country skiing at its finest. The trail will be carefully groomed and double-tracked to provide kick-and-gliders the opportunity to test their skills while enjoying the breath-taking beauty of the Vasa Pathway.
The 6km classic race on Sunday is designated for all boys and girls up to age 19, including high school racers. Please note: skiers over age 19 may participate in the 6km race, but only the younger racers will be recognized with awards.
Are you a newer skier who wants to partake in the fun but does not want to race?
Or are you an established skier or retired racer who would rather tour than beat yourself up on the race course?
Join us for this 6km FUN, untimed tour. All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate.
Sunday's 17km classic race will count for full Michigan Cup points (starting at 200 points), and the 34km classic race will count for partial Michigan Cup points (starting at 175 points). The Michigan Cup committee makes this scoring decision.
