Public Skating

Recreational Skating & Running

We will be opening again for the 2023/2024 recreational public skating and running season sometime this summer. Stay tuned!

Recreational Skating

The Olympic Oval typically offers more than 50 recreational public skating sessions per month on our 400-meter oval ice. The Olympic Oval provides groups of 15 or more a discount on recreational public skating entry fees and skate rental. Contact Oval Guest Relations for GROUP BOOKING details. Don't forget that the Skate Shop rents hockey and speed skates for use within the Olympic Oval. Available sizes range from child's 8 to adult 12. The shop can also help with all your skate sharpening and servicing needs!

Recreational Running

The Oval's indoor running track is perfect for those interested in recreational and high-performance running. During these hot summer months and frequent smoke advisories, it's the best place in the city to run in a healthy and safe environment. Additionally, during the winter months, when it can get to -30°C — running inside has never been more enjoyable. Come on down and join us for a great run!

Fun, Physical Activity

Recreational skating and running are some of the favourite activities for Calgarians to enjoy. The Oval provides a safe and healthy environment — and there is no better place in Calgary to enjoy these activities than at the Oval.
