Default The 2017 Squiggy Classic Inline Marathon and Half Marathon

It's back!

The event will be taking place a little earlier this time- the weekend of February 18-19, 2017.

There will be an evening social skate on the race course, as well as the main event on Sunday.

Flatwoods Park is a 7 mile loop in the wilderness closed to vehicular traffic. The loop was recently repaved, which makes for a beautiful and incredibly scenic skate. Cash awards for elite skaters, both open and master. Custom awards for the other categories 1st-3rd in 10 year age groups. Comfy tech t-shirts too.

Come down and join us in sunny Florida in February for some fun, and help inline events come back!

This now makes two new marathons for 2017. Are we seeing the beginning of a major inline speedskating revival?

Just getting acquainted to the forum.
Is there a location on the site here that lists all marathons for 2017? Or even external links would be very much appreciated.
Thanks!

InlineGeek.com has the best calendar I'm aware of.

As far as an inline speedskating revival: outdoor racing has seen a continual downtrend and has lost numerous events. Even with fewer races, the remaining races have not grown (and most continue to shrink in participation). Jessica worked really hard to bring back Squiggy. The Tucson race is in combination with a bicycle event. There used to be a stand alone marathon in the same area, the Cactus Classic.

Thanks for the link! I will check out the calendar.

It has been since 2012 I did the Road Rash in Austin, and just getting back in . Sorry to hear about the decline in participation. I'll try to get to the Squiggy.
