New in 2014 will be a sprint stage in Changchun that precedes the 12th edition of the free style Vasaloppet China. In fact, the latter marathon race has undergone modifications, too. The loop in Jingyuetan Park has been altered and the total distance reduced from 52.5km to 45km. Athletes better dont celebrate new years too much in Changchun or they may be up for a tough experience.
Information about the participants in the 2014 edition will become available soon.
