FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Elks Speed Skating Club members are preparing for the Canadian Age Class Long Track Championship event this weekend.

The age-restricted event will have a Girls age group which consists of competitors between eleven to fourteen years of age and will feature Emma North, Hannah North, Brooke Braun and Sidney Bennie. In the Boys category, which will see participants within the age group of twelve to fifteen, speed skaters Nicholas Guilov, Nyam Newlove and Joshua Telizyn will represent Fort St. John.
