Score-O – one course for all participants; time limit one hour. Because this event will take place after dark participants will need headlamps. The control stands will have reflectors on them to improve visibility from a distance. There are many lights on the trails but they are motion-activated so may not help you see things at a distance, and not all trails are lit.
Saturday and Sunday’s races are a combined event with 4 numbered courses each day: 1, 2, 3, 4. Results from each race will be combined to determine the overall finish order.
More information about the Score-O and the combined courses coming later!
Classes for Saturday and Sunday’s Combined Event
Age is as of December 31, 2024.
A “-” before the age means “and younger”; a “+” after the age means “and older”.
Women may enter age appropriate male classes.
ESWG medals will be awarded to the top 3 in each class in the Score-O, and to the top Combined Event finishers. There will be no medals awarded for Saturday and Sunday’s individual events. To qualify for a Combined medal participants must ski in the same class in both races.
The purpose of the M/F Open class is to offer a shorter course for participants who are not strong skiers and/or beginning orienteers who might find skiing in their appropriate age class too challenging or intimidating.
The F/M -12 class is the only class in which shadowing is permitted. The purpose of shadowing is to educate and provide a safe environment for a young or beginning participant. Both skiers should carry their own maps and the shadower should stay behind at all times, offering advice only for safety purposes. You must advise the race organizers that you will be shadowing beforehand. You can read more about guidelines for shadowing here.
