Experience Munger Trail 2019 is a group trail skate and ride to highlight the beautiful Munger Trail sections here in Duluth, Minnesota. Let’s get outside, enjoy the spring weather, and get some exercise on this scenic and fun trail! Experience Munger Trail is a FREE event and everyone is encouraged to join us–skaters, cyclists, runners, and even baby strollers!
In the historic Duluth flood in 2012, portions of the Munger Trail were washed out and in rough shape for years. Sections were gravel, bad pavement, and really impassible for inline skates. In late 2017, crews finished repaving 5 miles from Grand Avenue to Beck’s Road. We are so thankful for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for completing this huge project.
Please pre-register online to be agree to our liability/safety waiver and to be eligible for gear and prize giveaways!
Sunday, May 12, 2019. Group skate starts at 10am.
The group skate starts at the Willard Munger State Trail Northern Trailhead in Duluth at Grand Ave. (Hwy 23) and 75th Ave. West, behind the Willard Munger Inn.
You can go as long or short as you want! Head out on the Munger Trail and turn around to head back whenever you want. Easy! We’ll start at 10am.
Join NorthShore Inline Marathon for another season of Skate & Sip, a free inline skating group in Duluth!
The Skate & Sip is a collaboration with our beer sponsor Bent Paddle. We’ll meet at their taproom, skate an hour, and then enjoy some great craft brew afterwards! This event is FREE, and you’ll get a free beer each week! (While supplies last). Please register below to agree to our liability waiver. (You only need to register once for the entire series).
Every other Tuesday at 6pm, starting June 4, 2019.
Bent Paddle Brewery (1832 W Michigan St., Duluth, MN). Meet at the brewery parking lot, we’ll go for around an hour skate, and then reconvene at the Bent Paddle taproom for pints! We’ll probably do a few special edition skates at locations such as Munger Trail, NorthShore race course on Scenic Highway 61, or others.
Anyone! This is an open exercise group. Inline skaters, quad skaters, rollerskiers, runners, bikers, baby stroller pushers, and anyone else! Bring your own gear, and you must be 21+ and show your ID to drink beer. Bent Paddle Brewing Co. has multiple non-alcoholic drink options.
We believe in forming a strategic alliance with other running, rollerski, and inline events around the world to help promote our passion.
