Description:

The Alpenlgow 20k Freestyle, held each February at Tahoe XC, is one of the highlights of the nordic racing season. Three distances (20km/10km/5km) will challenge your peak season fitness on the iconic trails of Tahoe Cross Country.

Even if you’ve never tried nordic racing come on out and try one of the shorter distances; the trails at TXC are friendly and beautiful and you are sure to have a good time. Day of registration will be available at 8am. Race starts at 10am. Enjoy a festive social atmosphere in the Freeheel Lodge after the race!

Although the race registration is free, the event is donation-based with all funds benefitting the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA). Registration is done on-site the day of the race. Suggested donations are $40 for participants ages 13 and older, and $15 for participants ages 12 and under. All donations will be collected at registration on race day.
