The Global Ski Marathon Calendar is Online (Press Release)

Press Release

More than 120 races inserted in the calendar and valid for Worldloppet Global Ranking

“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.

Several races from all over the world joined the Calendar

As for today, 20 race organizations with all their 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 in the Global Calendar section, 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”.
