Des Moines paper proposes skate marathon

Postby Robert on Tue Oct 31, 2006 7:37 pm

This comes from today's Des Moines Register.

Des Moines: 12 ideas to steal

...
9. Inline skating marathons: Duluth and St. Paul, Minn.; Orlando

WHAT IS IT: 26-mile race on inline skates.

WHY WE SHOULD STEAL IT: Inline skating marathons are surging in popularity but are still new enough that only about a dozen cities in the United States offer them (compared to the more than 400 running marathons held annually). The one in Duluth attracts nearly 4,000 skaters. Plus, in cities that already have a running marathon like Des Moines, inline skating races are fairly easy to organize because they can use the same course.

COST: The St. Paul Inline Marathon in Minnesota costs about $125,000 and drew 1,700 in its third year last year.

Full story: http://desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs. ... 10354/1039

Who knows if anything will come of it ... but it's nice to know they are thinking about us.

just e-mailed the writer "MARY CHALLENDER" and mentioned I would like to help sponsor the race if they do end up having one. I mentioned we have some good ideas about marathons in MN and we could help them out. I hope this helps, we need more midwest races .

Hawk-eyed about skating

Postby Tahiti girl on Mon Nov 06, 2006 11:12 pm

Give the Des Moines Register a lot of credit. They currently sponsor the annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa(ragbri). It would be great if they decided to sponsor an inline skate race, too. Maybe Lance would decide to try his luck skating. He has already participated in the RAGBRI and now the NY Marathon. :)
