The Dutch Kortebaan (pronounced “court-te-ban”) is a traditional speed-skating sprint race held on outdoor ice. Historically, it was one of the first formats used to declare speed-skating champions in Holland and winners were usually awarded prize money – and a ham. In our version of the event, pairs of skaters race down a straight, 160m route on frozen Hawrelak Park Lake. One by one, skaters are eliminated until the final two compete in a sudden-death race. The final skater left standing wins a ham and bragging rights. 

 

This year's Kortebaan race happens on February 19 at 2pm -- sign up and bib pick up are available three hours prior ro races start.
