What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

This was my first cross-country ski marathon and I now can't wait to do another. In my opinion I think it is physically easier than a running marathon but that is not to underestimate it. You still have to have experience in cross-country skiing and going to the gym beforehand definitely pays off come race day! The whole atmosphere on race day was fantastic and there was a great camaraderie amongst the group. Everyone in the group finished the race and received a medal before having a well deserved beer and hotdog!

What did you think of your group leader?

Eric really helped to make this week. He ensured everything ran like clockwork and helped us to all be prepared come race day.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Go for it!
