    Time Standards  


    Women's Times 

     Distances  D2 Times  HC Times
     500M  49.00  56.35
     1000M  01:37  01:58
     1500M  02:30  03:05

     1500M  02:15  02:47
     5000M  08:10  09:32

    Times were adapted from the D2 times in the AmCup series in which the times were calculated to be 15% slower than those times to allow more racers to qualify. Skaters need only meet ONE distance time standard to qualify for the meet.


    The 5,000 and 10,000 will function as a "final" for the top four women in the 3,000 and the top four men in the 5,000. Those who meet at least one of the time standards above for entry will have the opportunity to skate the following distances: 500-1000-1500-3000 (women); 500-1000-1500-5000 (men). 


    This race is sanctioned by US Speedskating. 


    Initial seeding will be based upon www.speedskatingresults.com of most recent results since July 1, 2019.


    Categories may skate together at the discretion of the race director.


    The meet director can truncate the competition distances due to weather or time considerations. All efforts will be made to complete competition distances in their entirety.
