Default Napa Inline Marathon, July 14, 2013

2013 NAPA VALLEY ROAD SKATE MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON
A Speed, Recreational and Fitness Roadskate for both inline and quad skates
Date: Sunday, July 14, 2013

Event info re-printed from event Web Page:
In the spring of 1993, about 40 skaters participated in the first ever skate race in the Napa Valley. We started in Napa and ended in Calistoga. We called it the Roll Through The Wine Country, the Napa to Calistoga Roadskate. On Sunday, July 14, 2013, we will celebrate 20 years of presenting this event. You will not experience a more fun, exciting skating weekend as the one we are planning for you in one of America's most beautiful areas, the world Famous Napa Wine Valley.

DMJ Sports Marketing along with the California Outdoor Rollersports Association would like to invite you all to come celebrate 20 years of rolling through the wine country as we present the 2013 Napa Valley Inline Marathon and Half Marathon.

Skaters will roll past the vineyards and wineries along a 7 mile closed section of the Silverado Trail in the world famous Napa Wine Valley. The course is totally closed to traffic for the race.

The course has everything that makes a fantastic roadskate from the long stretches of flatland to rolling hills. The course has been changed to remove some of the more dangerous downhill sections. The road is very smooth "black ice" asphalt all the way and will be totally closed to cars during the event.

We will have two distances for participants of 26.2 mile marathon and a 13.1 mile half marathon distance for recreational and fitness skaters . You can register for the 2013 Napa Valley Inline Marathon and Half Marathon online at http://www.active.com/running/yountv...-marathon-2013 Online registration for the Napa Valley Inline Marathon will close on Friday night, July 12, 2013 at midnight.
On Saturday, July 13, you can register for the race, pick up your race bib numbers and event T Shirt at the event picnic site at Yountville Park in Yountville. We will be there from noon to 7PM.

Race registration for the day of the event will open at 5:00 A.M. at the start line on the Silverado Trail at Yountville Cross Road. You can print out the directions and the maps at http://www.cora.org/NapaMaps.htm

Such a fun race!! Had an awesome time... and scored 1st place in my category (30-39) ... can't wait to do it again next year; although I noticed, the older the category the faster the competition!!
