Whistler Longboard Festival | Day 1 - Jul 12, 2012

Date:    Thursday, July 12, 2012
Time:    12:30PM
Where:  Whistler Sliding Centre & Whistler Olympic Plaza

LongboardersDay 1 of the festival will feature 2 events to be held at Whistler's Olympic Park. The first event of the day is a 20KM endurance race; the race is open to all ages and skill level.  The track features climbs and descents and winds its way around the Olympic Park facility.

The second event of the day is the Skate X Shoot competition. The concept of this competition is very similar to winter biathlon event featured in the 2010 Winter Olympics.Riders take two laps around a 5KM course of rolling trail. Along the way they will stop at multiple firing ranges and have to hit targets, every missed target tacks on 150 meters to the course.

The two competitions have a prize pool of $2000 up for grabs for podium finishes. Spectators are allowed to line both the track and finish lines so come out and support the skaters.
