Can't Ski Sochi? SoSki the 2014 Loppet!

In the winter of 2014 our Olympic athletes will attempt to "own the podium" in Sochi, Russia.  At the Sleeping Giant Loppet we want you share the podium with your friends and family.  Come and participate in one of Northwestern Ontario's most loved winter events and get a photo on our podium with your family, team or training partners. 

The Sleeping Giant Loppet is a mass participation ski festival that offers fun for the whole family and challenges competitive athletes.  The Loppet takes place in the beautiful wilderness setting of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. It features multiple events with distances for skiers of all levels and abilities. Our 8km Mini-Loppet is perfect for families, children and rookies.  If you're ready to increase your distance or work on your speed, then the rolling 20km Marie Louise Lake loop is for you. The popular 35km Tour is a relaxed event that takes in the scenic vistas and killer climbs of the storied Burma Trail.  For the ultimate challenge, register for the Loppet's flagship event, the 50km Classic or Skate distance.  The 50km is perfect for elite skiers vying for one of our generous prize packages or citzen racers looking for a PB.  Mark March 1st, 2014 on your calendar and we'll see you at the start of the 37th annual Sleeping Giant Loppet! Don't forget about the RBC Sleeping Giant Sprints, Thursday February 27th under the lights at Kamview Nordic Centre.  Watch the action while you pick-up your kit.
