Kortebaan

Kortebaan WinnersThe Dutch Kortebaan (pronounced “kor-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 11 at 2pm. Sign-up and bib pick up are available three hours prior to the first race's start.
