Please note: the events will take place rain or shine. In case of lightning, start times may be amended.

Multiple races

We've designed the schedule of events so that participants can skate or watch several races during this jam-packed day. Starting with the 10k at 1:20pm, means those skaters who wish to get more distance in can skate in at least 2 events, e.g. the 10k and 42k (starting at 2:10pm) or the 10k and 21k (starting at 3:55pm). Fast skaters looking for a great workout and lots of distance can even make it three (e.g. 10k, 42k, 21k). Similarly, the family race participants can add either the 10 km or the 21 km to their experience. Each race will be officially timed by Sports Stats timing chips and custom race bibs will be created for each participant.

The course

Colonel By Drive in down town Ottawa will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the races. All races will start and finish at the same location. Skaters will skate counter clock wise on the road, i.e. in the right direction. All races will have a 180 degree turnaround on the road. Pavement is generally in good condition.

Awards

Top 3 overall male and female in every race will receive an award certificate at the award ceremony. All participants will receive finisher medals.

In addition all participants will be entered to win great prizes ranging from gift certificates, clothing from OISC, inline skating equipment and more!

History

Since September 2001, we have held the X-Endurance training weekend where skaters came together to skate up to 140 km over 2 days. By 2004 we advanced to a full-fledged marathon race plus additional training opportunities. Ever evolving, we have reincarnated the X-endurance weekend in the Ottawa Inline Skating Festival where the whole family, from kids to serious racers, comes together to celebrate our sport and test their fitness and racing abilities.

Organizers

The Ottawa Inline Skating Club was founded in 2000 as a non-profit club established to meet the needs of recreational, fitness and speed skaters alike. It is a club run by members for members. The Club has hired the services of Somersault Promotions to assist with the development and production of the Ottawa Inline Skating Festival. Somersault is one of the region's premier sports event producers http://www.somersaultpromotions.com/. We owe special thanks as well to our partners and sponsors for their financial and in-kind support of the Festival.
