The first event for all skaters is a 350 meter metric-style time trial. This time trial is used for seeding purposes to place skaters into groups of approximately 5 to 7 skaters. The fastest skaters will be placed into the “A” group, the next fastest into the “B” group, and so on, until all skaters are placed.
A and B categories will follow the Senior long-track distances. Category C, D, E, etc…will race distances based on time trial times and skill set.
