Races will be held rain or shine.  Flooding of the loop (very rare but possible if multiple days of hard rain) will turn the event into a group skate on the remaining dry roads in the park.  Due to the nature of putting on outdoor inline races where most costs are non-refundable and paid well in advance, no refunds due to Mother Nature’s fury will be possible.  April is the second driest month and average temperature; Low 57 and High 80.  

 

Timing

You will pick up your timing chips at check in.  You will be wearing the same chip for all races.  All chips are pre-checked prior to the race and will read each of your laps and splits, however, SKATERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING CORRECT COUNT OF THEIR LAPS.  It is perfectly acceptable and encouraged to have a spectator or coach you trust to help you keep track.  We will have a lap counter for the lead skater/pack.  Do not cross the timing wires or come close to them at any non-race time.  Never turn around and skate against traffic.  If you do not wish to circle the entire loop after a race, there is a sidewalk to the left of the course that runs to the restrooms then and the other side of the start line.

HELMETS ARE REQUIRED TO RACE. No exceptions. Wrist, elbow, and knee are strongly encouraged.  No headphones of any kind will be allowed.  Any skater found racing with headphones even if the device is not turned on will be disqualified and given NO REFUND of any kind. Safety first.

 

Course Etiquette – Slower skaters (skaters not in the lead pack) should stay to the right side of the course to allow faster skaters who can reach speeds over 30 mph to safely pass on the left.   Skaters who are passing should  announce themselves prior to overtaking slower skaters. 

 

Races will begin at 8:30 on Saturday April 17th, Sunday April 18th will begin at 7:30 am consider the timeline fluid.  Skaters should pay attention to announcements. We will try to have copies of race day schedule will be posted at the main pavilion, however, events may run a bit ahead of or behind schedule.
