Description

The Loppet High School Invite is sponsored by two high school Nordic Ski Teams (Robbinsdale Armstrong and Eden Prairie) along with the Loppet Foundation. The Loppet Invite is a sanctioned high school invitational nordic ski meet held at Theodore Wirth Park.

The Invite is designed for the top ten varsity ski racers from each high school to compete in a limited field of 16 teams from Minnesota. Three skiers will race in the 5K skate, three in the 5K classic, and four (two relays of two) will compete in the sprint relay event.

Race Format & Scoring

16 teams with up to 10 boys and 10 girls. Each team will enter the following number of racers for boys and girls teams:

Mass Start Individual Races

  • 3 racers entered for individual skate 5K Mass start race.
  • 3 racers entered for individual classic 5K Mass start race.
  • Each mass start race will have three wave starts with one minute between each wave. Place one skier in wave 1, one skier in wave 2, and one skier in wave 3.

 

Sprint Relay Race

  • Each team will enter two relays with two skiers each (4 skiers total per school team).
  • There will be two semi-final heats for both boys and girls. Each school will have one relay in each heat.
  • The top two relay teams from each semi-final heat automatically qualify for finals. The next six fastest relays advance by time to the finals.
  • In even years the relays are classic, odd years are skate.

 

Team Scoring

The team score is determined by each team’s top two skate finishers, top two classic finishers and top relay team. For the mass start skate and classic races, the point values will begin at 60 points for first place, 59 for second place, 58 points for third place, etc. For the relays, the point values will begin at 119 points and descend by three points for each successive place, i.e. 119 points for first place, 116 points for second place, 113 points for third place, etc. Non-scoring individuals, as well as relays, will hold their finish place, and bump other individuals or teams down in place. A team’s total score is the sum of their skate, classic and relay scores.
