Nordic Junior/U23 and Olympic Trials and Alberta Cup 3 & 4 UPDATE

Update: January 1, 2022

Please note that in the interest of safety the Race Schedule has been revised. 

Thursday will now be Skate Sprints for Trials racers. Women will complete the qualifier then all their sprints heats after a rest period.  Following the Women’s finals, the men will compete based on the same pattern in order to minimize the number of racers at the venue at one time.  This same pattern of running a full set of races by gender for Open and U20 will be used throughout the Trials races.

The Alberta Cup 3 & 4 will now include both classic (interval start) and skate technique (mass start).

These changes will be reflected on the updated Race Notice and Zone4.ca registration.

If you have already registered then the Race Secretariat will update your registration accordingly:

  • For the Open or U20 categories – if you registered for Saturday sprints, your registration will be updated to show that you are now registered for Thursday sprints and if you registered for the Thursday Classic race, your registration will be updated to show that you are now registered for the Saturday Classic interval start.
  • For all other categories, if you registered for the Saturday skate race, your registration will be updated to show that you are now registered for the Saturday classic race.

Given the lack of indoor facilities and COVID-19 restrictions, all participants are reminded to “Arrive, Train/Compete, Depart” the Canmore Nordic Centre.

Registration deadline remains January 2.

Safe travels to Canmore and best of luck in your races.
