The Richmond Olympic Oval opened its doors on December 12, 2008. To celebrate its 5th anniversary, the Oval will host 4 days of complimentary programs, classes, seminars, and workshops from December 12-15, 2013.
“The memories of the Oval’s wonderful opening weekend are still fresh in the minds of the many thousands of Richmond residents who participated in the ceremonies,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Everyone was there, from youth to seniors and all walks of life. It affirmed our vision that the Oval would be a facility that everyone in our community could use and enjoy. Since then, that vision has been fulfilled every day as hundreds of thousands of users have taken advantage of the diverse programs, events and amenities offered in this incredible legacy of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. I invite everyone to join us as we celebrate five years of tremendous success.”
Thursday, December 12th will begin with Oval birthday cake at 12 p.m. for the first 50 people that arrive at the Oval’s O Cafe; $5 drop-in admission will be in effect throughout the day. Other complimentary highlights of the event include free group fitness classes (Hatha Yoga Flow and Zumba), kettlebell workshops, a running clinic, a foam rolling session, an acupuncture seminar, a learn-to-row session, a bike fit workshop and a family Christmas skate on December 14, including a visit from Santa Claus.
