Thursday – Interval Start
The first event of the ASAA Nordic Ski Championships is the interval start event. The distances for this event are 7.5Km for boys and 5Km for girls. This event alternates between classic technique and free technique from one year to the next. The order of the genders also alternates between one year and the next.
In this event skiers start at 30 second intervals. They are ranked based upon their elapsed time over the course, not on the order they cross the finish line.
A skier’s finish rank in the interval start event determines his or her start position and bib number in Friday’s mass start event. The winner on Thursday starts with bib #1 in position #1; the runner up with bib #2 in position #2, etc.
For 2019 the interval start event will be held in classic technique. The boys’ 7.5Km will start at 11:00AM and the girls’ 5Km will start at 1:00PM. The girls will ski one lap of a 5Km course and the boys will ski two laps of a 3.75Km course.
A skier’s results in the interval start event and the mass start event are combined to determine the ASAA Skimeister.
