The NorthShore Inline Marathon happily welcomes MPC Wheels as an Advanced Sponsor for the 2018 events. This is an exciting partnership between two organizations heavily invested in the inline skating industry.
MPC Wheels is a manufacturer of high-quality inline skating wheels for every athlete. Elite and recreational skaters from around the world rely on MPC wheels to propel them forwards while on the track, road or in the rain. There are many models of wheels that MPC designs specially for different conditions.
“We at MPC are extremely excited to partner with the premier skating event in the USA. Our purpose is to grow skating, while still making the best inline skating wheels in the world right here in the good ole’ USA. We believe that this partnership can really help us bring awareness to the sport, giving athletes a goal to shoot for. Whether you are a season racer or a professional skater, NSIM is the event for you, and MPC the wheel to have on your skates,” says Francisco Ramirez, Wheel Product Line Manager at MPC.
As part of their sponsorship, MPC Wheels is posting a bounty for the course record, which NSIM has offered in the past. This year, if the course record of 57:18 is broken, the winner will receive a $20,000 USD bonus. The record was set 20 years ago during the 1998 race by Chad Hedrick, who has since become a Winter Olympic gold medalist in speed skating.
Additionally, MPC will offer a 50% Wheel Deal for all entrants to the 2018 inline races. If you sign up for any NorthShore Inline race, MPC will send a code for 50% off up to two sets of their wheels. The savings on two wheelsets is more than the entry price to the NorthShore Inline Marathon, and is an awesome deal to provide an incentive to register for the race.
“We are excited to join forces with MPC, and we are amped to be able to roll out some awesome stuff for the 2018 race. The MPC Team has shown up to compete for the win every year, and we’re excited to have support from a company really passionate about growing the sport of inline skating,” said NSIM Race Director Mike Ward.
