Skate the Lake 2017

Portland, Ontario – The 13th annual speed skating event was held on the Big Rideau Lake January 28th & 29th and it was a weekend filled with fun! Waking up early was well worth it for the ice conditions on the lake were amazing on both days. Participants could take part in the 5K & 10K races on Saturday and 25K & 50K regular marathon skating events on Sunday. Kids had the chance to try out their skating skills in a Kids 5K event on Saturday.

There were plenty activities to keep visitors of all ages active and warm on both days.

After the speed skating races, the viewers could enjoy a warm meal, served in the Portland Community Hall. The Portland Hall Board took care of that by organizing a Ham & Bean Brunch.

For the first time since the race started in 2004, people were able to watch the race from above, as helicopter rides were available on Saturday. There were curling and sleigh rides organized for kids and everyone could take a spin on the ice to music after the final race was finished on Saturday. At dusk, there were even fireworks with an after fireworks sit down dinner at the Portland Hall.

If you were part of the event and captured any amazing photos, send them to registration@portlandoutdoors.com and your photo just might get featured on the Portland Outdoors website.

For anyone interested in next year’s event, it will be held January 27th & 28th 2018 and you can already let the organizers know if you have any great ideas or would like to volunteer.
