Alley Loop Nordic Marathon – Crested Butte

February 3, 2017 - February 4, 2017

The Alley Loop

  • What: Colorado’s largest cross country ski race in its 31st edition
  • Details: Entering its 31st year, Crested Butte’s Alley Loop Nordic Marathon draws some of the country’s elite Nordic athletes while also engaging the town’s free-spirited locals. Although there are hundreds of serious racers clad in aerodynamic spandex and seeking fast times at the Alley Loop, attendees are just as likely to see tutus, boas, masks, wigs, the ubiquitous Viking helmet, and elaborate costumes of all sorts on race day.  If that wasn’t enough it also starts, passes through, and finishes in downtown Crested Butte.
