Description

With great sadness, the ERCCCI Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 37th Annual Pepsi Challenge Cup 50K Freestyle & Classic, Great River Energy Rush 25K Freestyle & Classic Nordic Ski Races to March 5, 2022. We feel that we cannot:

  • assure complete safety of all participants, volunteers and other local citizens at this critical point in defeating COVID-19
  • provide our normal high-quality, family-oriented fun event with awards, food and extreme socialization
  • predict what regulatory guidelines will be in place on March 6.

Registrations will be extended to next year or refunded per request. 

Giants Ridge is open 7 days per week. Please come and ski with us during the remainder of the season.

Thank you for your interest and commitment to our Race and communities.
