Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Omni Mount Washington Resort to Benefit the New England Ski Museum
Saturday March 7, 2015
At the site of the famed 1982 US National Championships where Nordic legends such as Bill Koch and Tim Caldwell competed, the Bretton Woods Nordic Center of Omni Mount Washington Resort invites all long distance classic skiers to join them on an epic journey to benefit the New England Ski Museum.
Staged between the historic Mount Washington Hotel, Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, the New England Ski Museum’s Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Mount Washington Resort has become a memorable North Country winter occasion, steeped in history and Nordic skiing tradition. Held in early March each year since 2009, the classic format, cross-country ski race in half marathon and marathon distances showcases one of the largest Nordic systems in the northeast.
Recent past winners include Olympians Justin Freeman (2010, 2011) and Dorcas Wonsavage (2009, 2010) and top collegiate racers. Participants range in age from 11 to 75; and may enter either the timed or untimed divisions of the one or two lap course. The scenic course in the shadow of the Northeast’s highest peak has frequent feed stations, and participants partake of a post-race meal within the grandeur of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel. This is a truly great event for recreational and competitive skiers alike.
