Oosik Classic Race & Tour
SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 2020. 12:00 pm
Historically the race has been held the 3rd Saturday of March. However, due to warmer temperatures we moved the race one week earlier.
General Info on Race, Trail, Timing
The race course is different every year. Oosik distances are approximate but are generally a 25km and 50km race. The 50km is a single loop added to the 25K. The cut off time for the 50km: skiers need to be at the mid point by 3:00 pm.
A trail sweep starts around 4:00 pm and will hurry all skiers to the finish. If you want to keep skiing then they will collect your name and bib number so that the timers do not have to wait around for you to finish.
50K start is 12:00 pm
25K start is 12:30 pm
There is also a Junior Oosik and that race starts at 10:00 and 10:30 AM.
10:00 am for 10km, 10:30am for 1,2, and 4 km
- Skiers ages 6 and under: 1 kilometer
