      • Heat 1, Lane 1 - both runs

      • Heat 1, Lane 2 - both runs
      • Heat 2, Lane 2 - both runs
    • Skate in forward direction, no stopping or redos
    • Each obstacle in each Lane may only be hit once in each Run
    • Best run from each Lane averaged to determine final score
    • Each run is timed
      • Average time from highest scored Run in each Lane will be used to calculate overall placing for time
      • Placing in terms of time is subtracted from overall average to determine overall placing
      • Maximum time penalty deduction is 10
      • Example: If average of best scores from Lane 1 and Lane 2 is 79 and skater is the 3rd fastest clocked time based on those two runs, the final score for overall placing is 79 minus 3 = 76
