This is a relay race of 2x5km. Each member of the two person team skis the same 5km course once. Teams will be assigned consecutive bib numbers (1 and 2 or 15 and 16, for example).

The odd number goes first and lines up at the start lining for a mass start. At a short exchange zone in the start/finish area each team's first skier will tag the second skier (wearing the even bib number) who then skis their lap.

We will have prizes for the following: first all-female team, first all-male team, first coed team, and first century team (ages of the two team members equal 100 years or more).

This is a freestyle race, so you may ski either skate or classic, but we expect the fastest times will be posted by skaters.

Details on registration will be posted soon, but race registration will open about a week in advance.
