Hi Coaches & Athletes:

Thank you very much for all of your feedback and ideas as it has helped to formulate a plan for this weekend’s races. As everybody is aware, the conditions on our race courses are marginal, especially the classic sprint course. The Jury has reviewed the course, the current conditions and the weather forecast and has unanimously decided to change the racing formats (generally the plan is to reverse days). The plan is as follows:

Saturday – Interval Start Free

U16/U18 – 5km – 2 x 2.5km course (this is not changed other than the day)

Open – 10km – 2 x 5.0km course (this is a change from the current plan as we are going back to the 5.0km course)

Sunday – Sprint Classic

All age categories – Sprint qualifier on the 1.2km course (this is not changed other than the day)

Snow Permitting – Sprint Heats for the top 30 in the open category. (this is a change from the current plan).

Note that requests to race up from U16/U18 to Open will not be permitted from this point.

Sunday Alternative Plan – Interval Start Classic

If snow conditions do not allow the qualifiers to proceed on the sprint course safely, then we will run a short distance Classic Interval race in the following format:

U16/U18 – 1 x 2.5km lap

Open – 1 x 5.0km lap

The final decision for Sunday’s race will be made by the Jury at the end of the races on Saturday and will be communicated by WhatsApp Saturday.

Racing will still start at 0830 both days. The draft start lists remains accurate, just for opposite days.

Thank you for your patience in these challenging snow conditions.
