1999 Canadian Ski Marathon – February

February 1999

Founded in 1967 by former Canadian National Ski team member, Don MacLeod, the first “marathon ski tour” was designed to be the longest in the world, promoting a spirit of fitness, friendship and fun. The annual two-day event features ten sections that span 160 kilometers of tranquility and beauty through the Québec countryside: from Lachute to Buckingham with an overnight stop in Montebello.

Gunnar Kristiansen earned the Johannsen Bronze Medal by completing 5 sections.
