Northug’s local ski club Mosvil IL was instrumental for his ski career growing up. With Red Bull Janteloppet, Northug wants to give back to all cross-country clubs in Norway. 50 kroner of each entry fee goes back to the club that the participant represents.
“It is awesome to be able to offer something like this to cross-country enthusiasts, a ski race and ski festival of my own. I have been competing since I was a little boy, and now I get the chance to design my own course, invite people, and everyone stand together at the start, compete together and have fun together after the race,” Northug explains.
Remember to register what club you want to support when signing up for Red Bull Janteloppet!
