It’s marathon time! In just a little over three weeks the first marathon event of the season will be held at the Gaetan Boucher Oval in Ste. Foy P.Q. This is always a well attended event and a great kickoff for the marathon season – no cracks in the ice. Ice conditions have always been superb on this 400 metre refrigerated oval. There will be a free practice skate on Friday Nov 8th between 6 and 7 pm. On Saturday the 25km will be held at 5:30pm and on Sunday two races: women’s only 10km at 8:30am and then the one hour challenge at 10:30am. Refer to marathonskating.org for further details and a list of the marathons for the season. If you would like to try some distances this winter you should seriously consider the Quebec event since two of last years venues (Ottawa and Vermont) are not available for this season. I will be attending this one in Quebec City (always a fun place to spend some time), anyone interested in joining me? If so, see me at the Memorial Centre for further details re: transportation and accommodation. John A.
