The National Ice Centre in Nottingham is holding the Laps to Lapland festive challenge for all ice skaters wanting to participate.

The challenge consists of skaters circling the perimeter of the ice rink in laps to complete the miles to Lapland.

Skaters must complete 30,255 laps to equal 2,015 miles to complete the challenge, which started on December 1 and will finish on Christmas Eve.

Sarah McCann, from the National Ice Centre, said: “The Laps to Lapland challenge is in full swing and we’d love all our skaters visiting in December to join in.”

To add to the festive feel of the ice rink there is a Christmas tree, a life-size snow globe for pictures at the weekend, Santa’s grotto over two weekends and foam parties throughout the month.

Prices vary for adults, children, and offers are given out to students wanting to enjoy a day out on the ice or to get involved.
