2019 Collegiate Challenge - 3rd Annual

The 2019 North American Vasa will be the host for the 3rd year of the Collegiate Challenge during Vasa weekend.  All current collegians are invited to compete for bragging rights as King and Queen among their collegiate peers. Special awards will be given to the top man and woman who have the best combined times for the 12km Kortaloppet freestyle race on Saturday and the 16km Chemical Bank Classic race on Sunday.

The University of Michigan cross country club ski team will be the host team again. You will easily spot them whizzing through the Pere Marquette Forest in their signature maize and blue outfits.

We are extending an invitation to all college student athletes to compete either as individuals or as part of a club team. We are offering special entry fee pricing and possible help with housing during race weekend. Contact Pete LaPlaca for more information at vanguard@chartermi.net.
