We introduced the Advanced Section to races in 2004 and you seem
to have loved it! Teams that complete the advanced section of
the race and finish the course in time will automatically be
ranked higher than teams that finish the course without the
advanced section--even if they cross the finish line first! More
details about the Advanced Section is available in the
Competitor Update once you register.
Long-Format: This 10-14 hour format was created in 2003 to
give Salomon AC competitors a taste of night racing and
navigation, without a full overnight. This format evolved into
the Salomon AC Canadian Championship in 2004, and now happens twice a year – mid summer and for the Champs event.
