The first calendar uniting ALL marathon races around the world. Doesn’t matter if Worldloppet, Euroloppet, Russialoppet, American Ski Marathon Series, Visma Ski Classics… every marathon race should be considered and be visible in one place: The Global Ski Marathon Calendar”. This is what Worldloppet aimed at creating for the coming season, a tool that should be used together with the Global Ranking and serve race organizers establishing the level of participants but – above all- help popular cross-country skiers. The Global Ski Calendar & Ranking should, in fact, not only be useful finding the suitable starting wave for skiers who has not taken part to any other Worldloppet races, but also motivate skiers getting involved into the world of Cross Country Ski Marathons, seeing their efforts recognized, besides having a broader overview on the ski marathons worldwide.
As for today 20 race organizations with all their reaces, in total 124 races, joined this new project of the Global Calendar & Ranking and some more are willing to join.
Besides the 20 Worldloppet races (that include even more races counting all the different distances), races from several countries joined the Global Calendar, such as Switzerland, the United States, Canada, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Austria, and Germany.
The names of the races that joined the Global Calendar? La Diagonela and Mara in Switzerland, Canadian Birkebeiner, Sirdal Skimarathon, Reistadløpet and Lapponia Hiihto, just to name some of them. The complete calendar with all races included can be found on the Worldloppet website, with accurate details about each of the races and how to get in contact with them.
In the past months, both tools have taken shape and are ready to support skiers around the world starting from the coming season 2019/2020. The launch of the Global Ranking has already taken place with the Worldloppet Summer events in the Southern Hemisphere, where Ushuaia Loppet, Kangaroo Hoppet and Merino Muster opened the path to this new system and opened up a new era to “ski around the world”.
Dolomitenlauf: Back to Lienz for the 50 years
In the 50th anniversary year, the Organizing Committee wants to prepare something very special:
After a few years, the main classical run is running the track back to the main square of Lienz, where participants will cross the finish line on Sunday instead of Saturday. By doing this, the Organization wants to offer participants from all over the world a special cross-country experience. On the other side, the 42/20km Free Technique race will be held on Saturday still in Obertilliach, the place where the past 10 events took place and that could guarantee that no race was canceled due to lack of snow.
50 Years of the Dolomitenlauf will also be the perfect occasion for a special exhibition in the Spitalskirche, and for a documentary about the history of the main Austrian race, which will be on display for free in the cinema "Cine X".
