The Alternative Elfstedentocht (11-Cities-Tour) at Weissensee

The world's biggest ice sports event with 3000 active participants in speed skating marathons over 50, 100 and 200 km at lake Weissensee in Carinthia.
Mainly the Dutch are attracted by this fascinating sport and have been coming to lake Weissensee every year at the end of January since 1989.
At the ice skating marathons that are open for everyone an unmanageable number of speed skaters cope with the 200 km.
Their target is to get 200 km done on speed skating boots once a year.

Paul Connaghton of Aldwych Speed Club will be there again this year hoping to complete this gruelling course after injury last year stopped his attempt at a good finish. Best of luck Paul.

Furthermore the Dutch Championships in speed skating and several speed skating criteria for professionals take place. The sportive highlight is the 200 km ice speed skating marathon of the professionals. The world's best marathon speed skaters struggle for the victory in the Dutch Alternative Elfstedentocht.
The world record ‐ set on natural ice at lake Weissensee ‐ stands at 5 hours and 11 minutes.
