A seven-year run of the Cathedral of St. Paul hosting Red Bull Crashed Ice has ended.continue at TCS
The international extreme-sporting event doesn’t have St. Paul scheduled on its website for 2019. Instead, Crashed Ice will head to Yokohama, Japan, Dec. 7-8; Jyvaskyla, Finland, Feb. 2, 2019, and Boston Feb. 8-9, 2019.
Crashed Ice consisted of professional and amateur ice cross downhill skaters racing down an ice track of more than 1,000 feet from around the Cathedral’s façade to the bottom of Cathedral Hill. Multiple priests skated down the track prior to the event in previous years. Cathedral volunteers offered tours of the church during Crashed Ice.
