The finish line is almost here. Tell us your story by January 18, 2008!

We’re closing in on the final entry date for you, or a skater you know, to enter a video story in the ING Speed Skating Challenge.

The deadline for video entries is Friday, January 18, 2008.

We’ve already received great entries from across Canada; some have been serious, others hilarious, and more than a few have just been great fun to watch. What they all have in common is that they remind me of just what a great skating country Canada is, and how many incredible stories skaters have to tell.

With so many stories out there, I really want to encourage everyone to get their videos in to us before time runs out. And honestly, there’s still plenty of time to submit your story and get in the running for more than $25,000 worth of prizes* that are up for grabs.

Remember, the deadline for video entries is January 18, 2008, and I’m really looking forward to watching as many great stories as possible.
