The British 6Hours Endurance Challenge is back after a three year break, a collaboration between LondonSkaters Speed Team and Federation of Inline Speed Skating. The only skate event of its kind in the UK, this event is suitable for and open to all skaters and is fantastic training ahead of Le Mans – or just as a challenge! For international skaters this is also an awesome way to combine skating and a visit to the vast attractions of London. Fancy dress is acceptable (perhaps even encouraged!) as is taking part to raise funds for Charities.
The objective is to cover the greatest possible distance in 6 Hours in their respective categories, taking turns in teams or as a solo skater. Duo and teams skate one at a time in a relay, changing as often as they like and whenever they feel necessary. There will be a Le Mans style start (starting skaters will line up on one side of track and run across track to put on their skates). Teams will need to wear matching clothing to assist with identification.
Solo male / Solo female – £40
Mixed Duo / Female Duo /Male Duo / Wheels and Wheelchairs – £60
Male team of 4 – 6 / Female team of 4 – 6 / Mixed team of 4 – 6 – £100
Wheels and Wheelchairs entrants can select the Duo entry option; please notify us of your team members.
There is an age limit of 13 (Cadet and above) for this event. These younger skaters will be required to skate as part of larger teams of 5 or more, including two adult skaters. Youth skaters (15 – 16 years of age) will need to participate as part of a team of four or more (or three if a team member is unable to participate on the day).

Results will provide a breakdown of distance covered, time of laps etc which can be analysed. There will be a photographer present taking photos of you all which will be available to purchase, and each team will receive a digital certificate detailing the total distance covered during the event. All skaters receive a participant medal.
There will be gold silver and bronze medals for winners and two runners up of each category. There will be some other rewards for winners to be announced soon.
