Wave Starts

The start field is divided into wave starts. Wave 1 starts at 9:00AM sharp and the subsequent waves start at 3 minute intervals after that. When registering you will be asked to specify which wave you would like to start in.


Categories & Prizes

TGSR is considered a skate race, and the categories are broken down by gender (M/F) and age (10 year increments). Awards for the top 3 finishers in each age category will be awarded medals at the awards ceremony at approximately 12:00. Age groups are 9 and under, 10-11, 12-13,14-15,16-17,18-19, 20-29 and up by tens.


A band will play from 11:30 to 3:00 PM. This means for one low price you will receive a groomed and supported nordic race, an Après ski party and an excellent warm meal with musical entertainment!
