SNöFLINGA Skate Marathon & Olympic Style Races Description:
Held as part of the Annual Snoflinga Winter Festival and in conjunction with the 8th annual “retro speedskating” weekend (supported by the SkateNow folks in SLC). High Altitude also hosts the opening night of Snoflinga Friday, Jan 21, 2022.

9 am start for Olympic-style races (2 skaters at a time, 2 lanes). Hand held timing(old school).
10:30 am start time for 10/25/50k marathon. All categories of marathon skaters start concurrently. Lap counting will be an honors system but you will need to sign in every 10 laps for 10k, every 20 laps for 25/50k. Hand-held time (old school).
You can do both the Olympic style race and marathon race if you are so inclined.

Awards: Top male/female finisher overall for each marathon plus the winner of each age category. Special award

Registration: $20 entry fee (includes t-shirt). Deadline Jan 18 (midnight). Additional $5 thereafter (to cover the cost of mailing t-shirt).
