If you plan on registering for the Lake Louise to Banff loppet, the best you can do is to get on the waiting list and hope someone cancels.
This message is on the loppet website:
We have reached our cap and registration is now closed.
If you would like to add your name to the waiting list please email us at email@example.com
Four years ago, you could register right up ’til the deadline which was a couple days before the race. This is proof positive that cross-country skiing is becoming more popular.
It’s truly amazing how many people want to punish themselves. I’m in for the eighth consecutive time.
For those who missed out, there’s another loppet taking place the same weekend which is just as much fun. Nipika loppet
