Everyone will have 2.5 hours to complete the course. We figure that should give us all plenty of time to get things done and get us home in time for dinner.
Everyone has to start with two snowshoes on and finish with at least one. Also you must have at least one snowshoe on at all times. Your snowshoes should also have a minimum surface area of 120 square inches which works out to 20" long and 7" wide. Extra points if you bring out your Grandpa's old Mad Trapper snowshoes with original sinew.
GOING OFF COURSE
Passing / Being Passed
Throughout the event there is a good chance you will be passed and you will pass someone. Generally passing protocol is as follows:
Passer: 'On your left'
Passee: Moves to the right
Passer: Passes and says: 'Good Work / Keep it up / Doing Great'
Passee: Gathers his/her breath and says: 'You too Bud, you're doing Awesome!'
Passer and Passe: Completes manuver by returning to the center of the trail.
Please use discretion when engaging in passing. Select open areas where there is minimal potential for interference. Both Passer and Passe should work together to ensure a smooth and safe pass.
Results will be posted as soon as available at the event. Please take the time to look them over, as any errors or omissions must be corrected on race day. Official results will be posted on the StormXC.com website within 24 hours of the event.
