 World Record Rollerskiing Event with Perianne Jones, National Team Member and Olympian

(Note: This press release has been updated to reflect the correct date of the rollerski event.)

Fresh Air Experience is once again hosting a rollerskiing event in Gatineau Park, Quebec, this time with guest star Perianne Jones, National Team member.

Two years ago was our first attempt at gathering the most rollerskiers in one place and we successfully counted 257 rollerskiers in our turnout. Sadly no other ski club or area challenged our number, but we are doing it again anyway and of course we are going for a higher number.

We know that we have one of the best, most active ski areas in all of North America with more than 10 active ski clubs and thousands of ski club members. We know hundreds of those skiers rollerski, so come on out Sunday Oct. 14th and join Perianne Jones and hundreds of others to show our pride in cross country skiing and our great ski spirit.

Sunday, Oct. 14th at 8:00 a.m., parking at P9, alternate parking at P8

Put on your rollerskis and go to the middle parking lot between P9 and P8. We gather, say hi to Perianne, take a group picture and we will then ski as a group to P9. We will once again collect names for proof of attendance and forward our results to Guinness to try to qualify for a World Record.

Tuesday, Oct. 16th from 7-9 p.m. An Evening with an Olympian

Meet and support Perianne Jones at the Britannia Yacht Club in Ottawa. Tickets $30 per person and available at Fresh Air Experience.
