Rangeley Loppet 2021
March 6 - March 7
Due to Covid precautions we have changed our format this year, moving the 25K Freestyle, 25K Classic and 25k Tour to Sunday morning to try to avoid any large gatherings. The total racer limit per day is 100. As the race dates get closer, we will close registration for races if 100 participants are reached across categories for the day. We have set up a waitlist under the 50K FS category in case this happens. Also feel free to contact us at [email protected] or 207-864-4309 to get on a waitlist.
The new schedule is as follows:
Saturday March 6, 9:45AM : 50K Freestyle Loppet
Sunday March 7, 9:05 AM : 25K Burt Kettle Classic
Sunday March 7, 9:45 AM : 25K Freestyle
Sunday March 7, 9:55AM : 25K Tour
Races will have a Wave start 10 at a time at one minute intervals. We will seed based on previous race times and other applicable race times.
