Battle of the Nations

The Battle of the Nations goes into another round! If you want to be there and represent your country, you are welcome to try your luck. This is how it works: When you register online, tick the box “I would like to participate in the Battle of the Nations”. When the online registration has closed, 6 participants will randomly be chosen from each nation to join the battle (women and men from start group 1, 2 and 3). These participants will be notified by email and SMS and the day before the race they can pick up their national armbands at the Race Office. Each participant starts in his or her chosen start group.

At 15 o'clock the victory celebration of the Battle of the Nations takes place in the VIP area. The Battle of the Nations is a "race in a race", where the fun should be in the foreground. The principle of chance also means that "surprise nations" can emerge as winners.

Award ceremony

Immediately after the first three women and three men have crossed the finish line, the award ceremony or Flower Ceremony will take place on the balcony of the VISMA Ski Classics Trailers. At 3 o'clock the award ceremony of the Battle of the Nations will take place in the VIP area. Each participant will also receive a certificate, which can be downloaded online, as well as a gold medal (for those who finish the 60 km race in the winning time + 50%) or a bronze medal (for all other participants). All participants of the 30 km race will receive a bronze medal.

After-Ski Party

After a successful day of competition, there's time to celebrate: That's why the Kaiser Maximilian Lauf will be followed by an "After-Ski Party in Tyrolean style". We cordially invite you all to come to the VIP rooms of the World Championships building from 12 noon and taste a "Tyrolean delicacy" together with your colleagues from many countries. Accompanying persons can take part in the party against payment.
