25 Years Ago – Choosing the Race Date and our Historical Weather Report

The NorthShore Inline Marathon has taken place on the second Saturday after Labor Day for (nearly) 24 years. Legend has it that early race organizers did an extensive long-term climate analysis to determine the best conditions of the year for Duluth, Minnesota. Precipitation, wind, sunshine and temperature were all taken into consideration, and the middle of September was selected as the best bet for fair conditions windows 7 ie10. The second Saturday after Labor Day was eventually selected as “the day”, and the rest, they say, is history! The only two years that weren’t on the second Saturday after Labor day were 1998 and 2010.
