36. Planoiras Folk Cross-Country Skiing Race

Digital Edition from 17 January to 7 February 2021

The 36th Planoiras Folk cross-country skiing race cannot take place in its usual form in 2021. But we have worked out a variant in which everyone can take part.

Unfortunately, the route cannot be followed on the original course. However, the route chosen for the alternative is also beautiful and challenging. Start and finish are at the Biathlon Arena in Lantsch/Lenz at the trail pass control. You can choose between the «Planoiras» (23.5 km - two laps) or the «Planoirino» (12 km - one lap).

By the way, both runs count towards the Swiss Loppet Challenge.
