What are the Team Pages?
The Team Pages
are a set of five pages that you create that become part of the Ski to Sea website. The name of the site is usually your Team Name. You can post photos, videos, and messages to each other on all the other Team Pages. It's a great way to show off your team!
Can I compete in more than one race leg?
A: No, a racer is only allowed to compete in one race leg, and only for one team. If a team captain allows a person to race in more than one leg, or knows that the racer is already racing for another team, that team may be disqualified.
Can I do the race solo or in tandem?
A: No, as the race is a team race, and that team is made up of 8 racers.

before race day or on-site at the Race Day Meeting held for that particular leg of the race.
