Winter hasn’t really started yet, but after a meeting with the Ministry of Health we have to announce that there will have to be changes to the coming edition of the Czech largest cross-country skiing series ČEZ SkiTour. Based on an agreement with the Ministry, at least the first two races, the Bedřichovský Night Light Marathon and Zadovská 30 will have to be moved because of the measures. The biggest race in the series, ČEZ Jizerská 50, has had to close registrations because of lowered limit on the number of participants.

The other events in the series will take place in accordance with the current safety measures. In the case that the race does not happen, registrations are transferred to the alternative date free of charge, or to next season.

 Traditionally just before the end of the year, all cross-country skiing fans focus their attention on the first weekends in January – the start of the new ČEZ SkiTour season. This year was to start with headlamps on at the Bedřichovský Night Light Marathon, which has been moved due to the development of the epidemic situation from 8th-9th January to 19th-21th February (the precise date within this range will be announced during January).

 The same goes for the popular Zadovská 30 which moves from the original third weekend in January (16th-17th January) to mid March (13th-14th March). At this moment we hope the other races in the series will take place on the original dates.

 The final format of the events, including ČEZ Jizerská 50, will depend on the way the situation unfolds and that’s difficult to predict at the moment. We will know more after another planned meeting of the organisers with the Ministry of Health which will take place in the middle of January.

 In any case the organisers are doing everything to meet all safety requirements while making sure participants can enjoy this year’s events to the utmost. Even in these difficult times we believe the 14th edition of the ČEZ SkiTour will take place, just in a different format than we were used to.

 Registration for the 54th ČEZ Jizerská 50 has been closed earlier than expected, but you can still sign up for other races in the SkiTour series. In the event of a race not taking place, the race fee is automatically transferred to the alternative date. If the participant cannot take part in it, it will be transferred to the same race in 2022.
