All registration for this event is online, with payment by credit card.  Entry fees are $15 for NSCF members and $20 for non-members through midnight Thursday prior to the race.  After that date, entry fees increase by $5.  Race day entry is available, but it will also be via online registration, with payment by credit card.

Course Description:

The course will start in the stadium, go up the Ramp, out Relay Alley, and turn down the Outhouse Loop.  The course takes the first cutoff on the Outhouse Loop (the “Upper House” cutoff), then goes out Sunnyside to the Section Line cutoff, at which point it takes a sharp left and returns to the Outhouse Loop.

After finishing the Outhouse Loop, the course takes a right and does the remainder of the Relay Loop, goes down the Ramp, turns right and comes up the East Ramp, then enters the Tower Loop.  The course follows the Tower Loop to the upper end of Tower Direct, then turns sharp left, descends Tower Direct via the Sprint Elbow, then goes out Roller Coaster, turns left down Roller Coaster Bypass and returns to the stadium.

After entering the stadium, the course turns right down White Bear Access, then right again onto White Cub.  Upon entering the biathlon stadium, the course takes a left and then two right turns to get back on the White Bear.  The course then follows the White Bear to Suicide Cutoff and takes a left, returning to the stadium WITHOUT skiing Moilanen’s Meadow. Skiers re-enter the stadium, bear right down the east side of the stadium, turn left and pass in front of the ski center and then lap (for the 20Km) or head into the finish (for the 10Km).
