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 2023 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 1000 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.

Other important rules

Should the 7th Lemming Loppet cannot take place the January 21, 2024, it will be postponed to the Februar 25, 2024. 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. The registration is valid for the next edition.

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

The racetrack is not closed for other cross-country skiers. Participants of the Lemming Loppet must respect those persons. Being unfair to other participants or having a respectless behaviour against other cross-country skiers will lead to an immediate disqualification.

It’s forbidden to litter (packaging of energy bars or gels for exemple). There are rubbish bins at the marshals of “Zollstockparkplatz” and in the ski stadium for the 42 km. Waste must be thrown in or near these rubbish bins. Elsewhere means immediate disqualification.

The participants are not allowed to leave the track and to make needless noise.

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.
