What he said, plus - it would be great if the race information could also be on the race website where you have the PDF. I for one hate to go to myspace pages, they are so cluttered and hard to read, the music is annoying, you can't find the info you want... since you have a site already, it would be easy to put the basic info there as well.

Also, lot's of places of employment block myspace pages (we do) and if I wanted to check it out at lunch or something, I couldn't, the other site I can.

Are there any more details for these events yet?
Is there course mapped out yet, and is it near the track?
What time does the track events begin on Sunday 1/20?
What time does the road events begin on Mon 21, and do both the 10k and the 42k happen simultanously? Can someone compete at both the 1500m -10k and skate the marathon?
Are there any hosting hotel nearby?
Is there any expo type event going on during the weekend?
Do I ask to many questions?

Publicizing details of these events hasn't been a priority. These events have been held for years; I sense their attitude to be that everyone who is interested already knows all they need to.

The marathon course has always been near the track, inside the park which includes the track. Events usually start fairly early in the morning, like 8AM.

Generally, the schedule allows everyone to skate all events, so you could do the 1500 and the marathon if you had enough energy and feet weren't too sore. I don't see the 10k in the plans, do don't know whether that's a stand-alone race or intended as a shorter skate for those for whom a marathon would seem too long.

Several hotels are about 15 minutes away.

Yes, there will be an expo.

No, you don't ask too many questions. Although really expecting answers to all would be a bit much; just come, leave a little extra time, go with the flow; you'll have plenty of fun even if you don't get to every single race, there's plenty else to do in the vicinity if you have spare time

There is a Holiday Inn at the intersection of Interstate 95 and Sheridan Street.

To get to Piccolo Park,..... just head WEST (away from the Atlantic Ocean) on Sheridan...... it's about a 10 - 15 minute drive DIRECTLY to the Park. There is a booth at the entrance and they charge $ 1.50 to drive into the park. The skate area is way in the back and off to the right. I have trained there several times and it is really nice facility.

It is hard to say what they will use as the marathon course. There is a nice FLAT & WIDE outdoor skate road that is ONLY for skating. This is NOT the banked track but is located just next to the banked track. This trail is about 12 feet wide and is a HLF MILE around with several turns (R & L). I don't know is they do a 43 laps to make up a 26.2 mile marathon,...... or if they utilize the roads within the park. Those roads would be ideal for a marathon, and on the posts that got lost last week,... someone replied to me that they remembered the marathon being on those park roads.

Anyway,............. it is probably a good idea to go the day before and just wing it.......you will not miss the race. It is easy to get there and there are lots of stores, restaurants,.. etc. on Sheridan St.

This is very close to the Ft. Lauderdale Airport which is just a few minutes NORTH on I -95, ...but a long drive to the Miami Airport.

ENJOY

Hi Sheldon,

Although, Trurev is only the sponsor, I will answer your questions to the best of my ability:

Are there any more details for these events yet? IF YOU PRINT OUT THE REGISTRATION FORM. THE SPECIFICS ARE LISTED.

Is there course mapped out yet, and is it near the track? YES, IT WILL UTILIZE THE WHOLE PARK INCLUDING THE 800 METER TRACK. THIS WILL BE THE SAME MARATHON ROUTE AS THE PAN AM CHAMPIONSHIPS A FEW YEARS AGO WHICH IS ABOUT 2 MILE LOOP.

What time does the track events begin on Sunday 1/20? I WOULD GET THERE EARLY AFTERNOON AND GET YOUR OWN WARM-UP AND SKATING PRACTICE DONE. HUNDREDS OF SKATERS WILL BE PRESENT MID AFTERNOON AND OFFICIAL WARM-UPS ARE DONE BY AGE GROUPS WHICH CAN TAKE TIME. COMPETITION USUALLY DOES NOT START TILL LATE AFTERNOON.
What time does the road events begin on Mon 21? YOU NEED TO BE PRESENT BEFORE 7:00AM IF YOU WANT TO PRACTICE ON THE MARATHON TRACE., and do both the 10k and the 42k happen simultanously? NO. Later their will be a 20K ONLY FOR ELITE SKATERS. and a 10K for AGE GROUP both on the 800 meter crit course. Can someone compete at both the 1500m -10k and skate the marathon? ABSOLUTELY, IN FACT MOST REGULAR COMPETITORS WILL BE DOING THAT.
Are there any hosting hotel nearby? WITHIN A 10 MILE RADIUS, I WOULD APPROXIMATE AT LEAST 50 HOTELS. SEE http://www.Myspace.com/miamiinlinemarathon for a few listing, however, many hotels available.

Is there any expo type event going on during the weekend? MOST MAJOR MANUFACTURERS IN USA WILL BE ATTENDING.

Do I ask to many questions? NOT AT ALL.

When I skated it, it was smooth, perhaps some shellrock, but it was welll buried below the surface. Hopefully someone has current experience.
