Our traditional Skate the Lake weekend for 2022 was cancelled but you should check out the Skate the Lake Challenge

Skate the Lake is a community event that depends on a team of dedicated volunteers. It was first held in 2004 and was initially known as the International Big Rideau Lake Speed Skating Marathon. Skate the Lake is traditionally held on the last weekend of January. We typically organize 5K, 10K, 25K and 50K races along with a 5x1K relay and a 5K kids race.
