Virtual Races

Each above category offers a “virtual” option for those who don’t feel comfortable with racing at the same time as the group. Enter the “virtual” race and you’ll be able to ski the race course at a different time between the Friday and Monday of the race weekend and submit your time. Since courses vary immensely due to time of day, this category will be scored separately from the others and by gender only.

More details to follow on bib pickup and submission of your race times.  Course maps will be posted on the TUNA website, and courses will be marked to the extent possible relative to grooming requirements at the venue.

COVID-19 Protocols

Face coverings will be mandatory before and after the race.  They may be pulled down between start and finish, but must be replaced immediately afterward.  BeFAST WCS neck gaiters will be provided to all season pass holders and may be used for this purpose.

All races will utilise interval starts.  In order to minimize the number of people at the venue at the same time on race days, younger juniors (U16 and below) will start at 9:30.  Hopefully most of them will be able to leave before the adult races, which will start at 10:30.  There will be no awards, prize drawings, or lunches, so all racers will be expected to depart the venue as soon as they finish skiing.  No congregating will be allowed at indoor spaces at any venue.

We’ll provide Tyvek bibs that skiers will use for the entire winter. You’ll pick up your bib at a designated outdoor location at the first race you attend and bring it with you for all future events.  In order to be assigned a bib number, you’ll have to sign up on the TUNA website at least 2 days in advance of your first event.  These rules hold for single race or season pass signups.
