Virtual Edition: Ushuaia Loppet participation possible despite COVID-19

Covid-19 is hitting the world of marathon skiing hard. Unfortunately, the Worldloppet season has to start with a cancellation due to the travel restrictions: Ushuaialoppet, the Argentinian Worldloppet race and traditionally the season opener end of August has announced the cancellation! BUT!!! Only a few days later the Club Adino Ushuaia – the organizers – came up with an alternative: Ushuaialoppet Virtual Edition 2020!

This season we will not be able to stamp your Worldloppet Passport at the end of the world, but we want you to be part of an unique event in August, which you can do wherever you are! And for 2021 we are waiting for you again in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego – the end of the world.
