NorthShore Inline Marathon, Inc., produces eight different races every September.

Over the years, we have added race distances to the Skate races (now including the Half Marathon Skate, Combined 39.3 Mile Skate, and Tunnel 10k Skate), and added running and rollerski races. Runners can compete in the St. Luke’s Wheels-Off Half Marathon Run or Tunnel 10k Run, and rollerski racers can compete in the 42k Rollerski or 21k Rollerski.

Furthermore, every year we strive to achieve our mission of fostering an active lifestyle by encouraging people try to new outdoor fitness activities such as skating, running, and rollerskiing by offering free group exercise and inline skate rental opportunities year-round for the general public.
