Worldloppet 2016/17

What is Worldloppet ?

The Worldloppet Ski Federation (known as “Worldloppet”) is an international sports federation of cross-country skiing marathons, founded in 1978. The aim of Worldloppet is to promote the sport of cross-country skiing through its various member ski races around the world. Only one and therefore the best race from a country can be a member of Worldloppet. Worldloppet currently unites 16 races from Europe, America, Asia and Australia as full members. Since summer2014 four more races were accepted into Worldloppet as Associate Members who do not have any voting right at the Annual General Assembly, the yearly meeting of all member races.

Worldloppet members:
Europe: Jizerská Padesátka (CZE), Dolomitenlauf (AUT), Marcialonga (ITA), König Ludwig Lauf (GER), Tartu Maraton (EST), La Transjurassienne (FRA), Finlandia-hiihto (FIN), Vasaloppet (SWE), Bieg Piastow (POL), Engadin Skimarathon (SUI), Birkebeinerrennet (NOR), Demino Skimarathon (RUS), Fossavatn Ski Marathon (ISL)
America: American Birkebeiner (USA), Gatineau Loppet (CAN) , Ushuaialoppet / Marchablanca (ARG)
Asia: Sapporo International Ski Marathon (JPN), Vasaloppet China (CHN)
Australia: Kangaroo Hoppet (AUS), Merino Muster (NZL)

Completing of a Worldloppet (WL) race is a remarkable achievement and worth recording! Worldloppet Passport (WL Passport) is a personal document, in which every completed WL race should be registered. The official WL Passport contains a special page for each event in the Worldloppet series. After completing a WL race, the skier should ask for the official stamp of theevent at the respective race office. A stamp in the WL Passport is the evidence of the completed race. Collecting of WL stamps is an additional motivation to practice cross-country skiing and to travel to many different countries, meeting likewise minded people and experiencing different cultures. By the standing of summer 2014, more than 14 000 WL Passports have been issued to people from all around the world.

How to buy a Worldloppet Passport?
The price of a WL Passport is ca. 30 € (depending at local VAT). Passports are available in every WL race office in the 20 member countries and at the WL General Secretariat in Italy. WL Passports can also be ordered via Internet http://www.worldloppet.com

Everyone can become a Worldloppet Master!
After completing 10 different WL races with at least one of them outside of Europe (situated overseas), the skier will be recognised as a Worldloppet Master (WL Master) - as WL Gold Master, if completed 10 WL main races, and WL Silver Master if completed 10 WL short races (possible to combine with main races).

In order to apply for the title of a WL Master, the WL Passport should be mailed to the WL General Secretariat. The validity of all stamps will be checked there, based on the result lists of each applicable race. A WL Master diploma and a gold/silver-plated pin will be mailed to the new WL Master and his/her name will be published on the Worldloppet web page and in the Worldloppet online magazine.

In addition, each WL Master has the opportunity to order a personal WL gold/silver-plated medal. This can be done by sending the order form together with EUR 40 to the WL General Secretariat. To this day (summer 2014) over 4000 WL Masters were recognised.

Worldloppet General Secretariat:

From 2002 to at least 2016 the race of Marcialonga is responsible for Worldloppet's administration and for the organization of its headquarter. It is situated in Predazzo, Italy during this period.
