A Muskoka tradition continues as a team of volunteers gear up for the annual Muskoka Loppet.

This year, the event will take place on Sunday, January 27th, at Arrowhead Park.

Organizers say the Muskoka Loppet is a cross-country ski event, in the classic style of skiing and the distances include a 5 km course for “social skiers” and children, and more challenging 15 and 30 km courses for recreational and competitive skiers.

This event is always very popular in the world of cross-country skiing and even more participants are expected this year since Arrowhead Park has two brand new indoor facilities to keep the participants warm before and after the event.

Holding a weather-dependent event is always a challenge but the organizers are confident that comfortable winter conditions will make this a perfect day.
