      • 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
