The Canadian Triple Ski Challenge is a significant test of cross country skiing endurance and skill that is accomplished by skiing to completion, in two consecutive weekends, all of the Canadian Ski Marathon’s 10 sections, usually over 160K, as a Coureur des Bois or Tourer, AND completing both of the Gatineau Loppet’s longest races, classic and freestyle (usually over 51 K each.) So this is well over 260 km of skiing over consecutive weekends!
This year we have (so far) these inductees who successfully met the challenge:
-Ken Jobba of Ancaster, ON, Canada –4th accomplishment
-Erik Grimm of Pittsford, NY, USA -- 4th accomplishment
-Carl Johnston of Pittsford, NY, USA –- 4th accomplishment
-Jim Everard of Toronto, ON, Canada, -- 2nd accomplishment
-Pat McFalls of Pennellville, NY, USA – 1st accomplishment
Not only did these skiers complete the distance, more than one of you did so with category podium and top ten results in the races. You know who you are!
