Welcome to Hoppet 2020 .. Do It Your Way
THE COVID -19 VERSION OF AUSTRALIA'S PREMIER XC SKI RACE
Normally on the fourth Saturday of August, over a thousand cross country skiers of all nationalities, ages and abilities race from Falls Creek village out over the Bogong High Plains for the KANGAROO HOPPET, Australia's premier cross country ski event and part of the Worldloppet series. This year is different and the event has become HOPPET 2020 -- DO IT YOUR WAY.
Hoppet 2020 .. Do It Your Way has been created in response to the impact of the Covid-19 restrictions on travel, social distancing and public gatherings on our event. While it is still possible to visit Falls Creek and enjoy the cross country ski trails, an international event of the size of the Kangaroo Hoppet will not be possible. The organisers also recognise that many would be Hoppet skiers will have been affected by the economic effacts of lockdown and also that some will be reluctant or unable to travel.
So, what does the Hoppet 2020 .. Do It Your Way involve? It is very simple. Enter on line and make three decisions. You decide to exercise over a 42km, 21km or 7km route of your choice, some time between the 10th and 23rd of August, using a physical activity of your choice. examples include walking, running, cycling, mountain biking, skiking, roller skiing or even actually cross country skiing.
