Cross-country skiers and snowshoers met up about 20 miles north of Duluth on Sunday.

This unlikely combination happens every year at the Boulder Lake Ski Race and Snowshoe Stomp. The ski races include a long 31K course and a shorter 11K. The snowshoe stompers can choose either a 10K or a 5K.

Race Director Clayton Keim said people of all skill levels participate.

"The race basically draws the whole spectrum of racers," he said. "Everything from weekend warriors that this might be their first race of the year, to some of these guys, they're racing every weekend. They're sponsored. So it's a really nice mixture of people across the whole spectrum."

Mark Johnson won the 31K. He said the course is deceptively simple looking.

"It was a pretty challenging race," he said. "The race course here is flat, which makes it sound easy, but that means you get no rest."

Johnson said he plans to return next year.
