Set in the beautiful Bow Valley, this race combines some of the Nordic Centre's best classic and new trails. The first day, you can rip it up in the Super D and still have plenty of time to enjoy Canmore and Banff. But make sure to save some energy for the premiere event on Monday morning: a marathon-style cross-country race. This race will be approximately 60km in length and is sure to challenge all abilities. Registration will be coming soon on Zone 4. See you there!
