Whether you are just out to have fun with your friends or family, conquering what you determine to be your personal challenge or competing like the vikings, there is an event for you.


55km Torskeklubben with Pack

Recreate the legend of the original Birkebeiner skiers by carrying the equivalent of the infant crown prince, a 5.5 kg (12 lb) pack. A point-to-point course from the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village rolls and winds along the east edge of Elk Island National Park and through the scenic Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area.
