Oosik distances are approximate but are generally a 25km and 50km race. Distance depends on route and snow conditions.
The 50km will be a single loop. Please yield to all in spandex and/or skiers sporting a red bib.
The cut off time for the 50km skiers is at the mid point at 3PM. A sweep will hurry the red lantern to the finish
All skiers have to show their bib number at the finish line. Please do not cross the finish line a second time, or when not in the race/tour.

Ode to an Oosik
– Robert Service
Strange things have been done in the Midnight Sun, and the story books are full.
But the strangest tale concerns the male, magnificent walrus bull!
I know it’s rude, quite common and crude, perhaps it is grossly unkind.
But with first glance at least, this bewhiskered beast, is as ugly in front as behind.
Look once again, take a second look, then you’ll see he’s not ugly or vile.
There’s a hint of a grin, in that blubbery chin, and the eyes have a shy secret smile.
How can this be, this clandestine glee, that exudes from the walrus like music?
He knows, there inside, beneath blubber and hide, lies a splendid contrivance — the Oosik!
“Oosik” you say — and quite well you may, I’ll explain if you keep it between us.
In the simplest truth, though rather uncouth, “Oosik” is, in fact, his penis!
Now the size alone of this walrus bone, would indeed arouse envious thinking.
It is also a fact, documented and backed, there is never a softening or shrinking!
This, then, is why the smile is so sly, the walrus is rightfully proud.
Though the climate is frigid, the walrus is rigid, pray, why, is not man so endowed?
Added to this, is a smile you might miss, though the bull is entitled to bow.
The one to out-smile our bull by a mile, is the satisfied walrus cow!
