Find An Inline Skating Marathon

By April 12, 2012

Follow me on:

In addition to North American and International marathon events, there are fundraising races, festivals and local marathons that raise awareness and money for a lot of good causes. Many skaters use these activities and other competitive speed events as the foundation for vacation trips, if the destination is a good one.

Inline skating marathon events are taking place all over the world, so there's probably one taking place near you. Marathons are a wonderful way for you to improve your skating skills, set fitness goals and take on an exciting inline skating challenge. You don't have to be a champion speed skater to participate in an inline skating marathon. The majority of marathon skaters are recreational inline skaters, and many marathons have alternative routes or distances to accommodate non-competitive skaters, non-pro level skaters. After all, there are a whole lot of people who will consider skating for 26 miles before they will run run that far.
