Barneløpet  Sunday, Feb 8th, 2015

The Barneløpet (meaning “Children’s Race” in Norwegian) is a classic-style cross-country ski event.
The Barneløpet (pronounced bar-NEE-lop-it) first
began in 1987 and was modeled after the “Barnebirke,” a children’s cross-county ski race held each year as a part of the world-famous American “Birkebeinerheld in Hayward, Wisconsin. 

The young ones line up for their race!

  Our Barneløpet, is an annual event held the second Sunday in February to encourage kids and families to get out and enjoy our winter snow season. It is sponsored jointly by the KNSC, City of Hancock, and the Sons of Norway’s Ulseth Lodge.

  Join us for a fun day of skiing at Hancock’s Maasto Hiihto cross-country ski trails.

Registration is open for ages 3 through 17 years old; parents are encourages to ski with their children if they wish. 
The Barneløpet start is at the Hancock Four Seasons Chalet trailhead on the Maasto Hiihto cross-country trail system with groomed and marked courses of 1, 2, 4, and 6 km, each for children of differing ages/abilities. Parents can ski with their children if they wish, to make
it a family outing!

Registration:  1:00 pm at the Four Seasons Chalet at the trailhead in Hancock (County Fair Grounds)
Start Times:  2:00 pm to 3:00 pm in age groups.

Youth skiers who complete their chosen course receive a large, colorful enameled Participation Medallion and can enjoy the hot chocolate and cookie treats provided at the Chalet for everyone after they finish.

event, is welcome.
