Race Notice: The Hughson Skate - with revised date

The ZRS returns this weekend with its first ski race of the season, the Hughson Skate. The race will be an individual start skate race using the same Olympic 5km loop as the upcoming World Cups of the same variety and should serve as excellent preparation for those selected to compete in those races. As always all people wishing to compete intensely are welcome to participate. Starts will be seeded using ZRS points.*
 
Date: Sunday January 13, 2008**
Location: Canmore Nordic Centre
Start Time: 10:00 for first male starter (women start immediately after men with 30 second intervals)
Registration: In stadium closing at 9:58
Distances: Men 10km (2 x Olympic 5km)
               Women 5 km (Olympic 5km)
Entry Fee: $0

*ZRS seeding is just like a World Cup with the fastest going last. Fastest seed is based on ZRS ski points (Killer Piller Challenge), next group is based on other ZRS events, third group is FIS points, 4th is CPL, 5th is IBU, 6th is citizen racers. 
 
**Due to a number of key competitors suggesting that Sunday, opposed to Saturday, would serve as an optimal start date, The Hughson skate has been moved to one day later.  The ZRS organizational committee apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
