Did you know that Hawrelak park is home to the largest skating pond in the city and our 1km loop? Here’s the challenge: give us your quickest lap. Then see how many you can do in an hour. This isn’t about world records, it’s all about personal bests. It doesn’t matter if you have top-of-the line speed skates or CCM Tacks from 1982. Get out there and show us what you got.
1, 2, 3...GO!
Silver Skate Festival is partnering with Marathon Skating International to host a reimagined One-Hour Skating Challenge this Sunday, Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Hawrelak Park.
