The event takes place 14th of March 2020 and is held in classic technique with a 60km long course. Visma Ski Classics Challengers concept was launched earlier in April this year as a common platform in order to connect and promote long distance skiing events worldwide. 

Novosibirsk Classic Marathon is a long distance cross-country ski race that takes place in the heart of Siberia – in Novosibirsk. The event offers to its participants outstanding weather conditions: the route goes through the forest that is full of white Siberian snow and is shined by the warm spring sun. Average air temperature at this period of year is 2-7 C under zero, that ensures high speed track. The track consists of two 30 km laps that combine long downhills with gentle
climbings and flat areas.

"We are proud to become a part of the Visma Ski Classics Challengers series and hope that our engagement will open Siberian nature and hospitality for the participants from all over the world. Both the 60 and 30 km distances offer a good combination of long downhills with gentle climbings and flat areas. We invite professional and recreational skiers to share our passion for the cross-country skiing!" says communication manager, Tikhonov Alexey
