This great event is one of the oldest Winterlude activities and exemplifies what winter in the Nation’s Capital is all about-skating on the Rideau Canal, coupled with cross-country skiing and running.

over the years, Mother Nature has thrown us come curveballs and we have had to adjust and adapt.  This year, due to some logistical issues, we have to adjust and adapt.

Distances include an 8km skate, 5-km run and a roughly 8km ski.

Race kit pick-up is at Bushtukah Great Outdoor Gear, 203 Richmond Rd, on Friday, Feb 1st from 17:00-20:00.

While we appreciate your enthusiasm and promptness, please do not show up at 16:00, or 16:30, or 16:45 unless you want to buy something.  We will not be ready until 17:00 so showing up super early will not serve you.
