      • Skaters broken into two heats
      • Two runs on each Lane, best run from each counts

        • 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
      • Ties will be broken by going to the second runs for each skater. If second run scores tie, it will be broken by the Head Judge
