Inline Skating (Rollerblading)

Recommended Posts

Time for my annual salespitch on inline racing. Some good races are going to be happening this summer. The Apostle Island Inline Marathon is June 16th. Three options to choose from. 1/3, 2/3 and a full marathon. The pavement is incredibly smooth. Baxter has an inline marathon as well as a half and an 8k the following weekend. First weekend in August is the Minnesota half marathon. It takes place in downtown St. Paul following the river. Weekend after that is another half marathon in St. Michael. The Northshore Inline Marathon takes place September 15th this year. They also have a half marathon option and are including rollerskis, rollerskates and a footrace this year, too. If you are a little nervous about getting involved in these events, don't be. The people (staff, volunteers and fellow competitors) are some of the most welcoming, gracious people you could ever hope to meet. Lots of fun and it gives a person a little motivation to get off the couch and move. Hope some of you will give it a shot this year.

Saturday, June 14th is this years date for the Apostle Island Inline Marathon. Extremely smooth pavement on the 8.7 mile course. There are three options again this year, 1/3, 2/3 and full marathons. It's really a friendly atmosphere if some of you are worried about not being a "racer". Another race to consider is the NorthShore Inline Marathon Saturday, September 13th. There are options in this race, as well. Half marathon, Full marathon and for the masochists, a 1-1/2 marathon. Also, there is a half marathon running race, ten k running race and rollerski race. Cool temps are pretty typical for this race. Again, a friendly field of competitors and great volunteers help make this the most popular inline in the U.S.
