The IMGA doesn’t allow building new venues and encourages the host cities to use existing facilities to keep the costs lower. Therefore, the following information is subject to changes depending on the venues available.

The age category you will compete in for Cross-Country Skiing will be determined as at 31 December of the year preceding the event. For example, if you are 39 at 31 December of the year preceding the event but have turned 40 by Games time, you would compete in the 35-39 age category. The age of the youngest athlete determines the age category for relays.
