UPDATED EVENT DETAILS

STAY OFF the snow making pond. It’s not safe!

Dublin School Facility is off limits. Please do not use their bathrooms.

Upper lot is only coaches & waxing. Not a drop off zone. Look at parking map for info.

SUNDAY UPDATE: 15km is changed to 10km on 2.5km snowmaking course. Please note we have changed start times for Sunday’s races due to the excellent field sizes. Intervals for starts will be 30”. No cool down on course. Course is open to bibbed coaches and athletes for warmup / preview with bibs on backwards.

All coaches and skiers should carefully review the course map and stadium layout for Sunday (posted on the DublinXC site). Pay special attention to the lapping lanes and the figure-8 nature of the course. The lap lanes through the stadium are only used coming off the upper portion of the course — meaning as you come off the lower portion of the course you proceed directly to the upper portion of the course. 5km skiers will ski the stadium lap once and 10km skiers will ski it three times.

PARKING

Please follow these guidelines for parking on Saturday and Sunday at the Dublin School Nordic Center. P1 on the map is for trailers and team vans. P2 and P3 are for coaches and athletes. We will be running a shuttle from P4 to P2 and back on both days. People parking in P5 and P6 should walk carefully along Dublin Road to William North Road and the shuttle at P4. For COVID safety please do not walk through the Dublin School campus or use any indoor spaces this weekend.

LIMITED: Please safely carpool with those you can. Limit the trailers. No busess in Main lot; athlete’s can be dropped off.
