Breckebeiner 50K Nordic Ski-a-thon

Join us for the 17th Annual Breckebeiner 50K Nordic Ski-a-thon & Snowshoe Bash, a benefit for the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) at the Breckenridge Nordic Center. This years’ event will start at 7:30am for registration and skiing followed by lunch and prizes at the Nordic Lodge.

Gene Dayton, the Directing Founder of the  BOEC and proprietor of the Breckenridge Nordic Center, made a commitment 50 years ago to ensure everyone has access to the outdoors through Nordic Skiing, including those with disabilities and special needs.  In celebration of this history and in support of the BOEC, the 17th Annual “50-50-50” Breckebeiner Nordic Ski-a-Thon will be 50 kilometers in length in hopes of raising $50,000 of much-needed scholarship funds for the BOEC.

The Nordic course will be on intermediate terrain groomed for both skate and classic styles. An adaptive Nordic course will also be offered for those with special needs. Nordic criterion ski loops of 2.5 and 5 km – and a 3 km snowshoe loop – will be marked. Rentals are available at the Nordic Center at a reduced rate for all participants.

Participants in the fundraiser can form a team or ski/snowshoe solo, but either way we encourage you to register and ask that you raise a minimum of $50 by asking friends, family members and business associates to pledge $1 or more for every 1k skied/snowshoed. You may register and create your own fundraising page online at skireg.com/Breckebeiner. A minimum registration fee of $30 for adults and $15 for children (12 and under) is required to participate. Online registration closes Saturday, April 6, 2019 at midnight. In person registration will be available on the day of the event, Sunday, April 7th at 7:30am.

The Breckebeiner is not a relay, so your team can ski the groomed Nordic course together. A number of contests and door prizes will be featured, and the top fundraisers ($250+) will be eligible to win gift certificates donated by Vail Resort’s EpicPromise. All donations are tax deductible.
