In the last few days, it started to freeze in the Netherlands. In the east of the country. But also in the west, the river Rhine is frozen at some places. This means it is now possible to skate in the open air as well in quite some villages and towns.

At 18:30 local time, the first outdoor marathon speed skating race of 2016 in the Netherlands will start on the Haaksbergen ice rink.
