Long Track

The traditional form of speed skating, with organised races beginning in the 19th century.  Normally skaters race against the clock, with skaters having their own lane around a 400m track, although pack style racing and pursuits have now been added to the long track competition schedule.  Skaters can reach up to speeds of 70km/hr.
