Start Orders and Results:
Submit Entries by 12PM on Wed Feb 12th to Bullitt Timing through your team entry spreadsheet
Bullitt Timing has added a “Relay Team” column and a “Leg” column to the team entry spreadsheets. Relay team should be designated as 1,2,3 etc. “Leg” should be designated as 1,2,3. Teams 1 and 2 are the scoring carnival teams, teams 3+ are for open skiers. If you have extra open athletes that don’t fill a full team you can enter them in the spreadsheet. Still enter a “Relay Team” number and a “Leg” number for these skiers that don’t have a full team. Bullitt will highlight them and look at all of the extra athletes to see what mixed school teams can be made.
Seed List will be posted by 8:00 AM Thursday, Feb 13th
After reviewing the seed list please make any changes and email those changes to Bullitt Timing (cc Jason Lemieux). All Seed Lists become final at 5PM on Thursday
Both races will be held on the Biathlon side of Mt. Van Hoevenberg. We will be running a 5K loop for the 10K Classic Individual Start races on Friday. The loop for the 3x5km Skate Relays will be a 2.5km loop (each athlete will ski 2x2.5km loops).
Friday’s Classic Races will have a diagonal stride technique zone.
Courses open, but only movement in the direction of race course travel is allowed.
No headphones allowed on course once races have started.
Saturday’s relay will use a chevron start with 7 lanes. It will be seeded as follows: the first seed position will be assigned to the first team from the school with the highest team score in Friday’s race, the second seed position will be assigned to the second highest scoring team on Friday, etc. The second teams from each school will be seeded in the same order as the first teams, and the top ranked second team will be seeded immediately after the last ranked first team. Finally, any open teams will be seeded in the same way. Mixed school teams of open skiers will be seeded behind any full school teams.
Will be available starting at 8AM 9AM on Friday and 8AM on Saturday both days in the biathlon lodge.
Parking and Power:
Plan to bring your own generators for power. Team rooms have been assigned (2 teams per room) and power is available. Please clean all rooms on Saturday before departing, so that they are in the same condition as when we arrived.
Parking will be available for team waxing vehicles and team vans. Parents, spectators and others may have to walk, ski or ride a shuttle from nearby parking.
Please keep team food tables outside or in individual team rooms. If using inside rooms there are no open flames of any kind allowed.
There will be warm space for athletes in the biathlon lodge. Bathrooms inside will also be available.
