MASKS REQUIRED: Everyone on the Quarry Road premises must wear a mask at all times. This includes the entirety of the race. We suggest a plastic frame insert to give space between your mouth and your mask. If a racer loses their mask while racing, we will have extra masks available to quickly stop and pick one up as they lap- a box of masks will be available at the lap/finish sign.

PARKING & SPECTATORS: There are no spectators allowed because of the Governor’s state gathering limits. Parents who are dropping off their skiers can drop off and then park in the larger lot south of the yurt, and please stay in your cars. Thank you for your cooperation so that we can continue to offer events.

BIB PICK UP & RETURN: Each racer will need to go to the registration window at the yurt and confirm that they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms. They will then receive their race bib. After you finish, please deposit bib into the bucket before you leave the finish corral.

T-SHIRTS HAVE ARRIVED! Please pick them up at the yurt window when you pick up your bib. We have a few extra shirts for sale for $20, preferably cash, but will take a check made out to Nonstop Nordic. If we don't have your size, you can place an order on our website or at registration table, as we will be ordering another batch of shirts. The awesome Nonstop Nordic STICKERS are also for sale for $1 at the registration table.

VIDEO STREAM: You can let your friends, parents, and grandparents know that they can watch the race from home (or your car)! We will be live-streaming the Finish (and possibly one other spot) to our Nonstop Nordic Facebook & Instagram pages.
