Does anyone have an elevation profile of the St Paul inline marathon course?

You can make one yourself. Go to www.mapmyride.com You'll be able to map the route then show the elevation chart. I was going to do it yesterday but got too busy. There's only a couple of climbs with lot's of flat skating in between. The climb that matters is the finish. According to Map My Ride it a quarter mile to the finish line from the turn off Warner Rd. The lowest point is 676ft and the highest is 814ft. Don't know how accurate that is.

USATF (http://www.usatf.org/routes/map/) has a great site for mapping and routing includes elevations. Not as good as having your own personal version of Topo USA, but close.

Now, the question was vertical elevation gain in Minn StP - it negligible, granted there is some bit I'd be surprised if total gain was over 250'. I am curious to see what you come up with. That 4 block hump of up to the park is a true cardio-kicking climb, but it's short and over with before ya know it!

Have fun!! Will miss Minn-St.P this year, we love that event- great course, well organized-can't say enough good things about it! SkateNow will be in Las Vegas this year at Roller Con - a huge quad/derby convention. Eric coaching his all star team this weekend. Hoping next yr these event dates won't coincide.

Now here is some serious elevation gain: 3200+ in 16 miles.
Big Cottonwood Canyon climb: from 5200' to 8500'.
