Coming Back for 2014
***Roller Derby Marathon Challenge***-What is it? It is an exiting NEW 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 new 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 will have their own awards racing against other Co-ed teams.
-Will my derby challenge team get a free event T-shirt? YES. any team of 2 or more skaters that enters before September 15 will receive a free event 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. (This is a new requirement in order for the event to secure a permit with the parks department. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause)
