With 179 skaters officially signed up, 149 made it off the Start Line on race day.
Justin Stelly, Norm Kirby & (SLC home town skater) Danny Frederick pulled a Bont sweep on the podium, for top 3 overall men's. Liberty Blake, Steffi Eyerkaufer, and Jana Herzogova (all hometown SLC gals) took the top 3 in women's.

Fastest time on the course was Justin at: 17:13

Our oldest skater was 75yrs, and our youngest participant was 6 years of age! Everyone who came out on skates, wearing anything from rainbow tutu's to spandex clad pro's, showed us their passion for skating! Eric & I were humbled by the energy and spirit of the skaters.

Pictures at: SLC 10K Skate Pics and, there are many posts on the SKATENOW Facebook page with other pics and stories from the event.

Timing system was pretty high-tech, times were captured as skaters hit the line with instantaneous text & facebook results awarded to the skaters as they crossed.

This was the first time the venue had a skate component incorporated into it's events. A bit of kinks with the bike tour will need to be worked out for next time, but overall the event went smooth, everything was on time, with a fun course thru downtown Salt Lake, ending in a lot of happy skaters at the Finish Line. Thank you all for coming out and showing us your passion for skating!

Post race included an adventure to Utah's Antelope Island for a blissfulness skate across the causeway followed by bison burgers.

If you missed it, plan to join us in Salt Lake next spring!
