Times were adapted from the D2 times in the AmCup series in which the times were calculated to be 15% slower than those times to allow more racers to qualify. Skaters need only meet ONE distance time standard to qualify for the meet.


The 5,000 and 10,000 will function as a "final" for the top four women in the 3,000 and the top four men in the 5,000. Those who meet at least one of the time standards above for entry will have the opportunity to skate the following distances: 500-1000-1500-3000 (women); 500-1000-1500-5000 (men).
