The Cup is an event where skaters accumulate points towards the end-of-season Canadian rankings, which are used to help select athletes who will be nominated for a chance to be on the national team program for the following season.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend and admission is free.

The Speed Skating Canada Cup runs today, Friday, until Sunday at the Pomeroy Sport Centre.
