The Races. Long Track Speed Skating takes place on a 400 m track. The skaters use blades up to 45 cm long. Skaters race in pairs counterclockwise (проти годинникової стрілки) on two lanes of an oval track, and the skaters change lanes every lap.

At competitions there are four distances for races — 500, 1,500, 3,000, and 5,000 m for women and 500, 1,500, 5,000, and 10,000 m for men.

The key to a good long track performance is to skate each lap at nearly the same speed.
