The 2016 Kanata Nordic Pretzel Race is a Free Style Sprint Race with a Qualifier. Athletes from ages 5 to 85+ and new or seasoned racers alike are encouraged to participate.

Start List 

Technique:  Free-Style Sprint Race


The Qualifier will be individual starts at 15 second intervals. The timed results of the Qualifier will be used to seed the Quarterfinal sprint heats. Sprint heats will not be timed and results will be based on relative finishing position.

There will be up to 6 skiers per sprint heat. If there are less than 24 skiers in a category the 6 per heat format will be used with reduced numbers in some heats and the top three will advance. If there are fewer than 16 skiers per category the 4 per heat format will be used and, except for Atoms, Mighty Mites & Pee Wees on the Short course heats, only top two in each sprint heat will advance.

Starting order in the quarter finals will be in accordance with CCC Rules and Regulations Section 360. The top 2 or 3 from each heat will advance. The top 2 or 3 from each semi-final heat will go to the ‘A’ Final, where numbers allow, the bottom 2 or 3 from each semi-final heat will go to a ‘B’ Final. For short course heats all skiers advance to a subsequent heat and to the Finals where an A,B,C,D,E,etc. Final will be run.

NCD points will be awarded to each participant based on their Qualifier times only if they complete all subsequent sprint heats for which they have qualified. All categories in the Qualifier will be seeded first by CPL where applicable, then by random selection.

Juvenile and older categories will compete on the Long (Red) sprint course. Midget categories will compete on the Intermediate (Blue) course and Peewee, Mighty Mite & Atom categories will ski the Short (Yellow) course. Depending on registration numbers race organizers may consolidate categories within these groupings.

Cost: $16.00 to $24.00 depending on category
