Individual

The Turtle River Pursuit is a 22K race with two disciplines performed by an individual skier. The Individual Pursuit will combine the times of an 11K classic leg and an 11K skate leg for a cumulative time and determination of the fastest skiers. 

The entire trail system is groomed regularly with a set of tracks and a skate lane allowing the skiers the choice of skiing the two loops on the same day or different days at their convenience. The race course is generally flat with intermittent rolling hills and the degree of difficulty is easy to moderate.

All participants will receive a nordic ski hat commemorating the event. Virtual event skiers keep and self report their time. Virtual event skiers may ski the course multiple times and report their best time.
