Combined – Half and Full Marathon

Skaters can skate the half marathon and the full marathon and be eligible for COMBINED awards. Top 3 Overall Men and Women will receive medals. Awards are based off of gun time (not chip time).

Rules and Information:

  • Anyone is eligible, skaters only (includes quads).
  • There will be a new “Wave C” in the full marathon for the COMBINED skaters.
  • COMBINED skaters are not eligible for half marathon and full marathon awards and cash prizes. There will be separate awards for this category.
  • Skaters will have their own bib color that will be worn for both events.
  • There will be separate t-shirts given to those that participate.
  • The last bus leaving for the full start will be at 9 AM. After that, you are responsible for your own transportation from the finish line back up to the full start.

If you want to skate both events and be eligible for awards in each event, you must register separately. You can still ride the provided buses after you finish the half marathon. No special awards will be granted for these athletes since they are eligible for prizes as they are participating in two separate events.

  • 6:45am – Leg 1 – Inline Half Marathon – 13.1 mi – Mass start with the half skaters.
  • 9:14am – Leg 2 – Inline Marathon – 26.2 mi
