The third annual Endurance United 55km Rollerski Event! We'll again start at Desnoyer Park, head east through St. Paul, and eventually take the Gateway Trail and the Brown's Creek Trail to the finish in Stillwater, MN. The ski will again be supported by Endurance United staff and volunteers, and we'll have a bus to transport from the finish to the start in the morning.
We are asking for a $15 registration fee to cover the cost of the bus, and again we are asking participants to donate to the extent that they are able in order to support the Endurance United Junior and Youth Scholarship Program. Last year was our first year awarding this scholarship opportunity; the recipient being Henry Snider, one of our top D-Team athletes. Beginning in the spring of 2018, Endurance United junior and youth athletes will have the opportunity to apply for, and win scholarships to help offset the cost of training and racing with Endurance United. Scholarship winners will be determined by a third party committee, and the number and dollar amount of scholarships awarded will be based on quality of applications. We are asking that 55km rollerski participants who are able donate $100 toward the program to help us to fund these scholarships. All donations, big and small, will be accepted and greatly appreciated. Endurance United is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.
The event will again be fully supported by EU staff and volunteers, with food, water, and spare rollerski/pole parts at many points along the way.
