“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
, 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!

“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
