2021 Race Update January 2021

It is with great sadness, the ERCCCI Board of Directors (Pepsi Challenge Board) has decided to postpone the 37th Annual Pepsi Challenge Cup 50K Freestyle & Classic and the Great River Energy Rush 25K Freestyle & Classic Nordic Ski Races intended for March 6th, 2021. We have rescheduled the race to March 5, 2022 at beautiful Giants Ridge, Biwabik, MN.
We feel that we cannot:
  • assure complete safety of all participants, volunteers and other local citizens at this critical point in defeating COVID-19.
  • provide our normal high-quality, family-oriented fun event with awards, food and extreme socialization.
  • predict what regulator guidelines will be in place on March 6th.
On-line registrations will be extended to next year's race or refunded per request.
We encourage you to still come and ski Giants Ridge during the ski season. Giants Ridge is open 7 days a week and offers 60K of beautiful and peaceful Nordic ski trails.
Thank you to those who support smaller races and their communities. Have a great ski season.
