Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. If you choose this option, you will still receive a GNC buff! We expect to receive them at the end of January and will mail them to you if you choose this option.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

The Glacier Glide race is postponed to January 24 due to low snow conditions (original race date was January 10). Registration will open the week of the race, snow conditions permitting. The Glide has been held in Whitefish at the Glacier Nordic Center at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course since 1983 but it will look a little different this year. There will be three ski race options, all freestyle (choose to skate or classic ski) - 1k, 5k, and 15k. There will not be a pursuit option or chili lunch/awards ceremony this year like there has been in the past.  In order to limit the number of people in the start area, racers will self-seed into groups of six people and groups will start one minute apart. We are running separate races for men and women for the historically bigger races (5k and 1k). Please be aware that we may have to adjust start times further depending on numbers of signups.  Please see our website for detailed start times. Spectators will not be allowed in the start/finish area but are free to watch and cheer from elsewhere on the course. The cost is $5 for the 1k, $15 for the 5k, and $25 for the 15k. . Registration for all races will close at 5pm the day before - NO same day registration. 5k and 15k participants will receive a GNC buff, and 1k participants have the option to add one to their registration for $10. This race is also part of the new Montana Nordic Cup series.
