“HOUSTON, WE HAVE A MARATHON!”
_____________________________________________

Have you heard the news?? The inaugural Houston Inline Marathon Weekend will take place right in the HEART of HOUSTON on Saturday and Sunday, November 3–4, 2007!

On Saturday, we'll have a free casual skate tour of Houston's vibrant downtown area, an Inline Fitness & Speedskating Industry Expo, and a Pre-Race Party with live music and great food!

Then, on Sunday morning, the Inline Marathon, Half-Marathon, and “Easy Street” Fun Skate will take place on beautiful Allen Parkway, featuring both recreational skaters and talented amateur and professional inline racers and teams from across North America — all coming to Houston for the grand-finale event of this year's marathon-racing season!

Whether you're young or old... a wobbly beginner, a fitness trail-blader, an urban street skater, a quad-skating Derby Girl, or an experienced indoor or outdoor speedskater... the Houston Inline Marathon Weekend has something for you!

Picking up where the former Long Beach Inline Marathon left off, the inaugural Houston Inline Marathon Weekend is well-positioned to become an instant classic. Don't miss out — come and be a part of the launch of a great new U.S. inline skating event!

Visit our website now to get more information, and to register!

*** EARLY-REGISTRATION DEADLINE ***
____________________________________

Don't miss out on the 20% discount during Early Registration — prices are only $55 ($15 off) for the Marathon, and $42 ($11 off) for the Half-Marathon! The last day for the discount is Saturday, September 15; prices return to normal when Regular Registration begins on Sunday, September 16. Save money by registering today!

“EASY STREET” FUN SKATE: BEGINNER- AND FAMILY-FRIENDLY!
_______________________________________________________

Are you a beginner skater, not quite ready yet to skate 13 miles? Are you a parent with young kiddos you'd like to skate with? If so, then our “Easy Street” Fun Skate is just for you! The Fun Skate is non-competitive, and will be held on a shorter, flatter course than the Marathon and Half Marathon. One lap of the Fun Skate course will be a little less than 3 miles, and Fun Skaters may choose to skate one, two, or three laps, at their leisure — it's ideal for beginners and families. Registration is very inexpensive, too — during Early Registration, the cost is only $20 for an individual, and additional family members (spouse or kids) are only $10 each! And as a bonus, every Fun Skater is just as eligible as the Marathon and Half Marathon skaters are to win valuable Door Prizes after the skate on Sunday morning. So don't wait... register today!

UPDATE: Regular Registration extended!

*** REGULAR REGISTRATION EXTENDED! ***

Because we love our skaters (even those who are really slow to pull the trigger for signing up), we’ve decided to extend Regular Registration until Sunday, October 28 — only a week before the main event! Prices will remain the same during this period:

$70 : Full Marathon (Open or Pro)
$53 : Half Marathon (Open)
$24 : “Easy Street” Fun Skate — Individual
$12 : “Easy Street” Fun Skate — Add’l family members (each)

After Oct. 28, online registration will close, and the only remaining opportunity to register will be in person at the Skating Expo on Saturday, November 3. Prices for “Last-Day” Registration will be higher, as shown below.

LAST-DAY REGISTRATION

Prices for Last-Day Registration at the Skating Expo on Sat 11/3 will be as follows:

$85 : Full Marathon (Open or Pro)
$64 : Half Marathon (Open)
$28 : “Easy Street” Fun Skate — Individual
$14 : “Easy Street” Fun Skate — Add’l family members (each)

*** Please note that registration WILL NOT be available at the race site on Sunday morning! ***

Last-Day MASL Discount

Skaters who compete in the USARS-sanctioned Mid America Speed League indoor meet on the morning of Sat 11/3, and then register for the outdoor event at the Expo that afternoon, will be offered a courtesy discount price of $75 ($10 off) for the Marathon, or $59 ($5 off) for the Half-Marathon.

Complete Official Results posted

Postby jmac on Fri Nov 23, 2007 1:25 am

The complete Houston Inline Marathon official results for all categories and divisions have now been posted online. The Web address is "results.houstoninlinemarathon.com" (or "results.houim.com" for short).

For the Pro Men, it was down to the hawk for the first three places, who all finished within the span of a tenth of a second! And Dallas Hebert and Shawn Smith finished at exactly the same time, so we have a tie for 4th place.

It's also interesting to note that all the Pro Masters men who finished the race, with only two exceptions, finished exactly in order by age.

If anyone has questions about the results, please email us at "results(at)houstoninline.com".

what a great idea it is to have a special course for beginners and for the young ones... i'm sure alot of skaters aren't into the competitive thing, and this way they can enjoy this day without having to be afraid of getting run-over by someone else! :D
