Allindividual events are 2000 meters and all times listed areapproximate. In events requiring multiple heats, we will attempt togroup competitors from slowest to fastest, in ascending order, basedon entry-form predicted times. All competitors will pull only onceand racing should conclude no later than 2:30PM. Please plan toarrive at least one hour before your event so that check-in,warm-ups, and racing can all run smoothly. There will be two callsfor the start of each heat: a 20-minute warning followed by a10-minute warning.

Pleasenote that you must register and check in for your event at least onehour prior to the scheduled time. Athletes who register later thanone hour before their event may be able to race in that event, or alater scheduled event, but will not be eligible for a trophy orbuckle.
