US Telemark National Championships
March 13, 2015 @ 8:00 am - March 15, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
The 2015 US Telemark National Championships have been scheduled for March 13-15 at Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Mark your calendars and make your travel plans. There is a race category for all levels, from juniors to citizens and experts.
No speedsuits are needed, but helmets are required. If you will be racing in the expert division, the helmet must have hard ear coverings. All racers in the Expert division must also have a USTSA competitive membership which can be purchased here. Bring your Nordic skate poles for all events to help with the skating portion of the race.
This race is being hosted by the same folks who are organizing World Championships, so they are fairly busy this next week, but we plan to have more information in the next few days.
The race schedule will be:
Friday – Sprint Classic (2 runs with combined time)
Saturday – 2 Classic Races (each race is one run and it is a longer version of the Sprint Classic)
Sunday – Parallel Sprint: There will be a qualifier in the morning, followed by the head-to-head competition of the top 32 or 16 men and top 8 or 4 women, depending on the number of competitors. This is an exciting format and great fun to be a spectator if you don’t happen to make the finals, or are eliminated during the finals. Bring your cowbells for this spectator friendly event.
