SISU Ski Fest 2022

Sat January 8, 2022 IRONWOOD, MI 49938 US
Countdown to Race Day
SISU '21 Has Ended!

Winners have been decided, and prizes are in the mail!

SISU '22 is in the Planning Stages!

Registration for SISU 2022 was opened for the week after SISU 2021 at a special early bird discount. Registration is now closed while we work on the details of next year's event. We will launch SISU '22 by October 1st.


We hope to return to our traditional weekend celebration of winter fun in 2022, centered around live, in-person racing.

The SISU race course begins at ABR Trails and ends in downtown Ironwood. 2022 will feature our new "Finnish" line in the Downtown City Square, Ironwood's newest park, completed in the Fall of 2021. Racing centers around our signature 30K SISU, along with the 15K Heikki Lunta and the 5K Hauska Hiihto Fun Ski.

We will work over the summer planning another fantastic event for you! Details will depend on the state of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic! For this reason, we are opening early registration for the week after SISU '21 and then will close registration until we have a better idea of event details. As we did this year, we will make decisions as far in advance as possible and keep you up to date as we go along! We will launch SISU '22 no later than October 1st!

If you deferred your registration from 2021, you will be automatically entered into SISU 2022 and do not need to register at this time!

Sisu is a Finnish cultural concept encompassing strength and determination in the face of adversity. It involves combination of stamina, perseverance, courage, and determination held in reserve for hard times. We honor our local Finnish heritage by borrowing this term as the name of our event, and demonstrate our sisu by training for and participating in the challenging events despite cold temperatures, snow conditions, hilly courses, competitive pressure, AND now a worldwide pandemic!
