Cross Country ski marathon


I'd love to do this one. Cross Country skiing is said to require use of 90% of your muscles. It's a really good workout. Having been on a CC ski holiday before during marathon training I found my running fitness helped a great deal, so it could prove a useful race if you want something to aim for through the winter.
If you've never skied before I strongly suggest getting some experience somehow though.
It needn't be too expensive either. I found flights to Zurich and back for £70, and there is dorm accomodation near the race start at budget prices (see on the website).

    wouldlove to do this to - xc skiing is great fun just a shame I live in a country where your chances of doing it are nil unless you take on the madness that is roller skiing
