Tupper lake;s Lumberjack Scramble 10K
TUPPER LAKE – On Feb. 28, an old favorite ski race will return to this community as skiers of all ages and abilities converge at the municipal cross-country ski trails to compete in the Lumberjack Scramble.
The event will take skiers through a course which includes views of Cranberry Pond and Big Tupper Ski Area. The trails are finely groomed by a dedicated volunteer staff and tracks will be set. This is a classic race only; skating is not allowed.
Registration is $15 per participant and begins at 8:45 a.m. Checks should be made payable to the Town of Tupper Lake.

There are four racing classes at the event: the Lollipop Loop is for skiers 7 and under and is free for participants, skiers age 7 to 12 will take to the golf course for a 3-kilometer race, and skiers age 13 and up will have the option of either skiing a 5-kilometer course or a 10-kilometer course.
The race begins with a mass start at 10 a.m. An award ceremony will take place after the race inside the heated pro-shop. It will feature refreshments and door prizes.
