Did you know that Claremore Roller World hosts a speed skating team?! They do, and they’re good! They travel all over and attend competitions in different states. They had their first meet of the season earlier in October in Fort Smith, Arkansas, with several competitors earning second and third-place finishes.
The fun part is, Claremore is going to be the host of the next meet! It will be held on Sunday, November 4, at Claremore Roller World (950 W. 4th St.). Doors open at 5:30a, and racing starts at 6a. It’s free and spectators are welcome! There will be approximately 200 racers from the Mid-South region, from tiny tots up to older racers. Some of them reach speeds of up to 23 mph!
On Saturday, November 3, from 4:30p – 6:30p, they will have the relay portion.
If you’re looking for something interesting to do, or if you’re curious about joining our local speed skating team, come on out!
