Morning skiing around Tallinn. Free afternoon to explore the city
This morning we pick up our skis and head out for an easy warm up session around the Estonian captial. There are two main options, one is about 25-30 mins to the West called Nomme and the other is about 10 mins to the East by the sea called Pirita. Nomme has a 15 km loop split into 2 sections. Pirita is more attractive as it runs through forest and along the river. In the afternoon we have free time to explore Ols Town Tallinn. This pretty 14th century walled city dates back to the days of the Hanseatic League, where it was an importanting trading port. Here's you can loose youself in the winding cobbled streets, with a change to dip into a cosy coffee shop to warm up by the fire. You may want to visit one of the two main Cathedrals or take a walk up Toompea Hill for a lovely view over the tiled rooftops.
Transfer to Otepää and afternoon skiing
Today we transfer to Otepää, approximetly 2.5hrs south east of Tallinn. We take lunch nearby and then head out on our skis to explore the local area.

Rest day and registration
Today will be spent collecting our race entry numbers, visiting the stalls selling ski equipment and memorabilia and enjoying the exciting pre-race atmosphere around the town. With a tough day ahead we recommend not skiing today.
Race day is finally here and we will join 6,500 other excited competitors at the starting line. The 63km routefrom Otepää to Elva is challenging but the sense of achievement as you cross the finishing line makes up for all the hard work. The race is one of the oldest ski marathons in the world, dating back to 1950. The record currently stands at 2 hours 41 mins.
