March 29-30 US Nationals Practice Sprint Races


Our race crew here in Houghton wants to practice running some sprints on our new sprint course prior to US Nationals next January. We have quite a base of snow right now, so this should also give athletes a great opportunity to get in some low key competition now that the season is winding down.

We have put together some details for the events on this weekend. Here they are:

* Saturday will be a FS individual sprint starting at 10am, then going to heats at noon.

* Sunday will be a CL 2 person x3 lap team sprint starting at 10am. If we have 12 teams or less per gender we will just do one heat of finals. If we exceed 15 teams, we will do prelims and finals.

We will figure out gender start orders and exact heat make up after we have a total estimate for competitors.

Costs will be: Varsity college skiers are comped, open racers, $10 for the weekend.

If your team or you as an individual want to join us, please email your interest in entering to me ( by close of business Wednesday March 26. Please send me your athletes names and likely sprint relay pairings. I will then get you out a release and put the names on the start list.

If you have any other questions, let me know.
