Starting Blocks

There are two starting blocks each with the 21 km race and 42 km race: In the first starting block a maximum of 25 participants start and in the second start block all other participants. A participant is automatically assigned to the first starting block if he has achieved one of the following results with the Lemming Loppet 2022 on the short or long distance:

  • Place 1-10 men’s overall ranking
  • Place 1-5 men’s sprint
  • Place 1-5 women’s overall ranking
  • Place 1-3 women’s sprint

In addition, participants can apply for one of the remaining places in the first starting block. Please send an e-mail to seeding@lemming-loppet.de with your recent results. For example, a position among the first 600 in the Global Worldloppet Ranking of the last season is taken into account.

Important: Only pre-registrated participants can line up in the first starting block! This means that on site registrated participants only can start in the second starting block.

Aid Stations

In each round and at the finish line.


Should the Lemming Loppet cannot take place at all because weather conditions do not allow any cross-country skiing, the entry fee cannot be refunded due to organizational reasons.

Awards and tombola prizes will only be issued to those who are present.

The race track is not closed for other cross country skiers. Participants of the Lemming Loppet have to respect those peoples.

The location does neither offer showers nor changing rooms. Toilets are available.

Snow situation / Technical snow

Within the recent years, at the end of January we have typically experienced best cross-country skiing conditions at the venue Kniebis.

Additional snow security is provided by the artificial snow generation at Kniebis.
