Beautiful Prospect Park in Brooklyn provides a wonderful traffic free route. Coming Back for 2015 ***The NYC Roller Derby Marathon Challenge*** -What is it? It is an exiting Quad Roller Derby Team Relay Race. -How does it work? A minimum of at least 2 Quad skaters & maximum of 8 Quad skaters can take place on this exiting event. Each skater will skate for one lap on teams of 8 people, or at least one lap per skater on teams having less than 8 people. (teams with two people can choose to skate 3 and 5 laps per skater for example) then give the relay flag to their partner to complete another lap; for a combined team total of 8 laps or a Marathon (26.2 Miles 42 Kilometers) -Who can sign up for this event? Anyone with Quad skates and a liking for Roller Derby! -Can teams be co-ed? Yes Co-ed teams are welcome. -Will my derby challenge team get a free event T-shirt? YES. any team that enters before September 20 will receive a free event T-shirt per skater. PLEASE NOTE THAT TEAMS THAT REGISTER AFTER SEPTEMBER 20 WON'T GET THE FREE T-SHIRT - Can quad teams compete on the 100K race? Unfortunately not. We have a time limit of 4 hours to finish our races. We believe that this is not enough time to complete the 100K race in quad skates. So quads can only compete up to 42K individual or in teams. Thanks for understanding. -Can we have more information on this event? Sure we will update our website with all the information and any changes. for more info log on to: www.skatemarathon.org Please NOTE that there is 4 Hour time limit to complete the 100K race, due to this change, Pro Elite Men and Women and Pro master or veteran skaters that have completed this race in 4 hours or less are the only people that can register.
