Due to quite a lot of rain over night, the conditions at the start area and at two more areas on the course made it impossible to hold the races today as scheduled. Despite the huge work done by the OC, the forces of nature were stronger. Since the temperatures were very high during the last couple of days, the soil is not frozen anymore. Pushing from underneath the track, this ground water is adding to the one coming from above through rain and the melting snow on the mountains around the track.

However, the jury and the OC were looking into the options to hold the FIS MC race tomorrow, but then in classic technique. It started snowing around 9am in Oberammergau and the hopes were high that the temperatures would be going down and the track would start to freeze.

At midday however, the difficult decision had to be taken: There won"t be a FIS Marathon Cup race this weekend! Today"s race won"t be rescheduled as a classic technique race tomorrow! However, all elite athletes inscribed originally for the FIS MC can enter the classic race tomorrow!

Next FIS Marathon Cup will be La Transjurassienne (FRA) 76km / 57km FT next week!!!
