Kongsberger Stampede
Virtual 15k & 5k Freestyle Ski Races

Virtual 5k, 2k, 1k & 0.5k Juniors Races

Saturday, Feb 13 - Sunday, Feb 28 - 2021

 
IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

We will be offering a virtual race, and racers can choose their own start days and times within the 9 day race period. The racing window will be Saturday February 13, 2021 @06:00AM- Sunday February 28, 2021 @NOON. (Extended due to extra snow and challenging road conditions.) Participants can complete the race as many times as they choose during the race period. All of your attempts will show on the preliminary results--your best overall time will be the official time.

SAFETY
  • Participants are requested to avoid skiing in packs with other skiers or knowingly coordinating their ski race times with other race participants.
  • Additionally, KSC is recommending that participants wear a face covering/ buff that can be engaged when passing other skiers.
  • Let's make it a fun and safe event for all participants.

Kongsberger Ski Club is following current state and county public health guidelines related to COVID-19 for this event. However, risk of COVID-19 exposure still exists. Your participation in this event is entirely voluntary and all participants assume the risk of exposure, which KSC cannot guarantee against. As such, KSC is not responsible for any possible COVID-19 exposure.

Timing Instructions

• Download the free Webscorer app.
• Sign into the app by using the same email address with which you created your account.
• Open the app:
-Tap 'race with self-timing'
-Tap 'my upcoming races'
-Tap the race that you are going to be doing
• Scan the START QR code to begin your race.
• Scan the FINISH QR code to end your race.
• THE START AND FINISH QR CODES ARE LOCATED AT THE TIMING SHED IN THE SKI STADIUM. The courses will be well marked with color coded directional signs.

TIMING WITHOUT A QR CODE
Use a stopwatch, GPS watch, etc., if you CANNOT use the QR code during the race, then as soon as possible after your race, do the following so that your results can be entered into Webscorer.
Download the free Webscorer app onto your computer or smart device.
Login with your information that you used for your race at registration. Parents, if you have registered more than one child, that means that you have to login with each child's login information.
This is how you will enter fake time stamps into the skier's Webscorer account so that the time can be edited by the Kongsberger Ski Club timing crew:
1. Tap 'Race with self-timing'
2. Tap 'My upcoming races'
3. Tap the virtual race for which you need to enter a time
4. Tap 'Scan code for start'
5. Tap 'Record time without code'
6. Tap 'Scan code for finish'
7. Tap 'Record time without code'
8. Send your time/ race details/ GPS screenshot if you have one to harperaugustina@gmail.com.

The organizer will be reviewing all edited race times.

Please keep things fair. At its core, a virtually timed race operates on an honor system. Follow the race course, do not take shortcuts, and please do not have somebody else capture your race times for you. Yes, scanning a QR code with a phone is slower than an automatically scanned chip or having somebody else capture your times for you, but luckily this task will be the same for all the racers.
