FIS WORLDLOPPET CUP
presented by Worldloppet
The Worldloppet Ski Federation in co-operation with the Cross-Country Committee of the International Ski Federation instituted the FIS MARATHON CUP in season 1999/2000, renamed in 2015 to FIS WORLDLOPPET CUP (FWLC). The objectives of the Cup are to improve the status of long distance competitions by attracting elite racers and to increase media and spectator interest in long distance racing.
Entry to the FIS Worldloppet Cup is open to all male and female athletes with an ACTIVE FIS CODE who qualify for the elite wave in the FWLC events.
The FIS Points Rules published on the FIS website are valid. Only competitors with an active FIS code which they must indicate upon registration will be awarded WLC and FIS points.
Prizes and Ceremonies
The organizing committee of each race participating in the FIS WLC guarantees a minimum prize fund of EUR 13 000 to be divided between the 3 best placed competitors in the men and ladies races.
In addition FIS will provide overall medals and trophies and Worldloppet will provide prizes for the first three men and ladies scoring the greatest number of total points during the FIS WLC competition season. Overall prize fund depends on the number of the races in the cup and will rise with every additional race. In case of 7 races the overall prize fund is EUR 20 000 (1st place - 6000, 2nd place - 3000 and 3rd place - 1000).
In case of equal points the leader (or winner) will be the athlete having won the larger number of races. In case of a tie, second places will be taken into account and so on to third and fourth places until the overall winner is determined. In the event that all places are equal, the racer that has completed the most recent race on the FIS WLC calendar, the event closest to the final event, will have the advantage. This rule applies for all ties.
The overall medals and trophies will be awarded immediately after the finish of the final competition. The monetary prizes will be transferred to the winners after the results of doping tests have been received and the official result lists have been validated.
Competitors who do not attend the prize-giving ceremonies without a legitimate excuse, lose their claim to any prize, including the prize money. In exceptional circumstances and if a notice is given in advance, the competitor may be represented by another member of his team, but this person has no right to take his place on the podium.
FIS Worldloppet Cup leader bib
At the Prize-giving following each race, a bib in a distinctive format will be presented to the current overall leader in the FIS Worldloppet Cup competition (Men and Ladies) and will be worn by him/her in subsequent races for as long as he/she continues to be the leader in the overall competition.
