Join us for the 14th Annual Breckebeiner 60K Nordic Ski-A-Thon & Snowshoe, a benefit for Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) on Saturday, March 19, 2016 between 8:00am to 2:00pm at the Breckenridge Nordic Center on Ski Hill Road.
The Nordic course will be on intermediate terrain groomed for both skate and classic styles. An adaptive Nordic course will also be offered for those with special needs. Nordic criterion ski loops of 6 and 3 km will be marked, and a snowshoe loop of 3 km. For families with youngsters there will be a 1 km snowshoe loop including a treasure hunt at 12 pm. Rentals are available at the Nordic Center at a reduced rate for all participants.
Participants in the fundraiser can form a team or ski/snowshoe solo. The Breckebeiner 60K is not a relay, so your team can ski the groomed Nordic course together. We encourage you and the business community to seek additional pledges in support of your participation. Ask friends, family members and business associates to pledge $1 or more per kilometer you ski or snowshoe! A number of contests and door prizes will be featured. The top fundraisers are eligible for gift certificates donated by Vail Resort’s Epic Promise. All donations are tax deductible.
A minimum donation of $25 adults and $10 children is required to participate and the BOEC encourages all participants to collect additional pledges in support of our cause (bring all donations and forms to the event to register). Lunch at noon (donated by Epic Promise), beverages and entertainment are included.
For questions please call 970-453-6855 or email: [email protected] Registration forms can be downloaded below or pick one up at any of the Nordic Centers. Participants can ski/snowshoe starting March 14th up to the event to meet their goal of kilometers completed. An early skiing trail pass is required for early skiing.
The Breckebeiner 60K is made possible through the generosity of Gene and Therese Dayton and the staff of the Breckenridge Nordic Center. All proceeds raised from the Breckebeiner 60K benefit the BOEC. For 40 years, BOEC has been providing life-changing outdoor activities for a diverse population of people with mental and physical disabilities, serious illnesses, injured veterans, youth at risk and other special needs. The BOEC is a non-profit organization and operates out of Breckenridge and Keystone. For more information or to get involved call 970-453-6422.
