HOW TO WAX FOR LANGLAUFFree Clinic by Fitness Fanatics
At Fitness Fanatics - 12425 E. Trent, Spokane WA Friday,
Feb. 8th, 2019 - 6 - 7 PM
Like Bloomsday, our mass wave start works very well with four start zones:
Racers having a current USSA competitorís license will be allowed to be seeded in the Elite or Fast Zone.
Elite - for the fastest racers only
Fast - for those who can ski fast, but not all out
Sport - for experienced skiers in good shape who never need to stop
Fun - for beginners, very young and those who mostly want to enjoy the scenery
Your finish time from previous races and your bib # will determine your assigned start zone. Volunteers will be available to assist you. Please cooperate for the safety and enjoyment of all.
It totals just about 10k and 640 feet of elevation gain. We encourage everyone to become familiar with the course in advance. Look for the course map in the lodge in January. There will be water at Jct. 4. Make sure to remove your transponder before leaving the finish area. There is a $95.00 charge if we do not receive it back. If you are visually impaired or a sit skier you will be able to participate in our Wave start, but at junction 1 will continue on Linder road to a turnaround then back to Valley View and our traditional finish line.
We must be able to see your bib on your chest. Finish times of two hours or less will be recorded and posted in the official results. Finish line will close at 12:00
NO SKATING! The Langlauf is strictly a Classical Technique event. A SNO-PARK PERMIT WITH SPECIAL GROOMING STICKER IS REQUIRED TO PARK IN THE LOT, and are available from Fitness Fanatics or at www.parks.wa.gov/winter. PLEASE CAR POOL.
