There is no limit on the number of tries. For Open Categories there will be a final round, for up to 8 competitors, or one more than half of competitors present, whichever is smaller. The format for Finals will be Modified World Cup (Onsight). All competitors, parents and coaches are expected to be familiar with these rules prior to attending the competition.

Youth Categories

11 & Under  |  12-14  |  15-18  -- Male & Female. 

Age categories are automatically calculated on the basis of birthdates, with the cut-off being March 1, 2015.

Youth (16 & Over) may compete as Open competitors, but their Series Rating will only be calculated (for awards) in that category for that event. If a Youth chooses to compete as an Open competitor in any two pre-lim events, they will be tracked as an Open competitor for the duration of the Burn series, and will not be eligble to compete in a Youth Category at the Burn Championships. 


It takes a lot of dedicated individuals to put on an exceptional competition. We are always looking for interested volunteers who can help make these events the best they can possibly be. In particular, volunteers can help with Judging, Scoring, Set Up and Route Setting. If you would like to volunteer for the Midnight Burn in any one of these areas, please contact Randi Goldberg.
