At 1.10 pm the men start their first 500 meters. Then the 1500 meters for women, the second 500 meters for men and the 5000 meters for men are on the program. On Saturday and Sunday there is also a lot of competition in Heerenveen for the Dutch titles.
The long track skating season was originally supposed to open on Friday with the Dutch World Cup qualifier in Thialf. However, the corona crisis has also changed everything in the skating world. The international skating union ISU has canceled all world cups for this calendar year and whether major title tournaments will take place in the first three months of the year is still the question.
An alternative program has been put together for November and December in the Netherlands. After the NK distances, which are normally held at the end of December, the NK allround (21 – 22 November) and the NK sprint (28 – 29 November) were brought forward and the World Cup qualification (26 – 28 December) was added. What will happen further in the new year is still unclear.
