2021 US Long Track Speed Skating Championships at the Utah Olympic Oval

March 5-7, 2021


KEARNS, Utah – US Speedskating (USS), the Utah Olympic Oval (UOO) and the Utah Sports Commission (USC) will host the 2021 US Long Track Speed Skating Championships this weekend at the UOO in Kearns, UT.  Team USA is back from a very successful Long Track World Championships in the Netherlands where they took home two gold and one bronze medal.


Skaters have been training hard all year at the UOO under strict COVID-19 protocols and are looking forward to competing in the US Long Track Speed Skating Championships to wrap up the season with the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China just 11 months away.  All the athletes have maintained an upbeat and positive attitude through a very challenging year.


“The Utah Olympic Oval is proud to host the US Long Track Speed Skating Championships in a skating season that’s presented unique challenges to all of the athletes that train at our facilities,” Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation CEO Colin Hilton said. “We are looking forward to providing a safe environment for skaters to compete on the ‘Fastest Ice on Earth’ as a culmination of their hard work and dedication this season.”


Racing begins on Friday, March 5th, with the Men’s and Women’s 500 meter, the Men’s and Women’s 1500 meter and the Men’s and Women’s Mass Start. Saturday the 6th will feature the Men’s and Women’s 1000 meter, the Men’s 5000 meter and the Women’s 3000 meter races.
