- Stadium Routing and 1km Course map
- 3 km map
- 9 km map
- 18 km map (36 km is two laps, 54 km is three laps)
These maps are georeferenced PDFs. You can view them in your browser, or print a paper copy or load it on a phone and see your location on the map. Our Trail Map page describes how to use Avenza with these maps.
Dog Trail Closure
As you can see from the route maps, the loppet uses some of the dog trails and the tunnel, therefore during the loppet the dog trails will be closed to dogs as they would present a hazard to the racers. Thank you for your understanding.
