Beginning in 1981, the Mora Classic committee and its various sponsoring organizations began a series that consists of four events.

Starting with the 2014 Canoe Race there are now TWO Mora Classic Series Options.

MORA CLASSIC (canoe race, half marathon, 50 mile bike, 35k or longer Vasaloppet USA) - this is the traditional option.

MOTION SERIES (canoe race, 5k run, 25 mile bike, 13k Vasaloppet)

As it has been in the last several years, these events can be started at any point in the year, but all 4 events must be completed in series.
Awards will be presented to those that finish the Motion Series, but will be the same award each year. The award will not change with landmark years as the Mora Classic awards are.
This addition was made to foster involvement for those who feel that they want to participate, but do not feel ready to complete the longer events.

In addition to the awards given in each event, the Mora Classic Committee awards a handsome Mora Classic Medal to anyone who completes all four events in the same annual cycle, beginning with any event.

Registration and a $10 fee is required for the Mora Classic. Important: be sure your name appears on the results lists showing that you completed each event. 

A bronze medal is awarded the first and second time an individual completes the series. Silver medals are awarded for the third through seventh completions, and gold medals thereafter.
