Default 2014 NIRA Nationals & outlaw marathon

We want to welcome anyone who wants to join and also any who want to watch, to come to ATL for the 19th annual NIRA Nats! This type of racing is the most exciting, as its "wide open" racing style, mimicking ST ice skating.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1461200424138573/

We are also finishing up the logistics of a first Outlaw marathon on sunday afternoon after the racing. IT will be held in Cumming, GA, about 30 min north of Atlanta. Entry fee will simply be a donation, and all profits(-expenses) will be going to the USA National/World team that is present that weekend!

The course is a 2.9 mile loop in a business park, so traffic is very low, especially on a sunday. Say tuned for more info in a day or two, but if you can, plan to make it to Atlanta Labor day weekend!

Just out of curiosity ~ for the benefit of someone from the other side of the Atlantic ~ could you expand on "ATL", "NIRA" & "ST"?

I tried Google but none of the responses made any sense.

Unfortunately your Facebook page isn't available as I type this at 17:36 (British Summer Time) so I can't look for explanations there.

Thank you.
