In an effort to keep everyone, including staff, volunteers, spectators and participants, as safe as possible, we are implementing numerous policies and procedures for the 2021 series. Please do your part to keep everyone safe and the series rolling for all five weeks.
Social Distance @ the Venue While at the race venue, please practice social distancing during the 2021 Winter Short Track Series. It's pretty simple folks, keep a minimum 6ft away from anyone and everyone unless it's a member of your household. The ONLY time anyone should be close to each other is on the start line. We are creating pool noodle hats and belts that act much like curb feelers for those who have trouble understanding social distancing.
Registration There is a max of 25 participants per category per race. If 25 people register for the series in any category, there will be no available spots for individual race registration.
Individual race registration will open on January 15.
Series registration will close on January 24.
Individual race registration will stay open until race day but we will NOT have onsite registration kiosk or paper registration forms this year. If you show up on race day, you will have to use a personal mobile device to register. Race day registration prices will increase by $5.
You will use the same race number for the entire series. If you loose or forget your 2021 race number, there will be a $5 replacement fee.
Race Start As mentioned above, we are only allowing a max of 25 per category on the start line. Groups will need to stay within the designated start zone until you are called to the start line. Being though participants will be within a close proximity of each other at the start line, we would encourage participants to wear a mask to the start line. Just before your race start, participants can remove your mask and place it in your race jersey pocket....NOT ON THE GROUND.
Example Race Start

Post Event We are not setting up the kiosk printers or TV screens during the 2021 series as we do not want gathering spots at the race venue. We will post lamented signs with a QR code for you to scan with your mobile phone. The race result signs will be posted all around the race venue.
Podium presentations TBD.
We will not be giving away food at the 2021 series as we are trying to eliminate communal surfaces but we will have a food truck at the race venue. We will have bottled water available for race participants.
