Minocqua Winter Park’s signature race combines the best trails of the park into a single-loop cross country ski marathon and half-marathon. Choose either skate or classic technique and “ski with the pack” around the epic 42km course or choose the easier 24km route.
This race is an official Birkie/Korte Qualifier!
If you’re up for a challenge, this race is for you! The course shares the first 5 km with the 24km folks, but get ready to turn on to some black diamond trails! This course features both Beaver Pond and VO2 Max, which you’ll hit at the front half of the race. There’s plenty of time to recover on the gently rolling namesake trail, Wolf Tracks. But, before you head to the finish line, skiers must first tackle River Run. Then, it’s a hop, skip, and a jump to the finish line!
The 42 km race will have 5 Aid Stations.
This course utilizes strictly easy and intermediate level trails. You’ll get your heart pumping right away as you climb up towards Tornado Alley, Survivor, and Yukon Trail. Once you tackle those hills, you will be rewarded with some nice cruising sections for the remainder of the race including the namesake trail for the race: Wolf Tracks.
The 24 km race will have 3 Aid Stations.
