That sounds like quite an event. I have to wonder why a marathon and half marathon isn't offered for skaters to attract out-of-staters. Is the full course not suitable for skating? Like too rough or dangerous downhill turns? I know the website says it's "wheelchair friendly", which means no uneven pavement, potholes, grass, curbs, or sharp turns at the bottom of hills. That sounds pretty close to skater friendly as well.

Or maybe the 10K is just a test to see how a skate race will fit in before including a marathon?

In any case, hope the 10K is a huge success and good luck if you skate in it!
