The event schedule and race programme are available via the following links:
Open to all skaters, the event consists of a 100m sprint tournament followed by the main event, the British Inline Marathon (or appropriate equivalent distances for younger skaters). Skaters are split into age categories and encouraged but not expected to participate in the 100m sprint, and are welcome to only skate in the longer race if they wish to do so.
The FISS age categories and their associated distances for the endurance race are as follows:
- Junior (17 – 18 years of age), Seniors (19 years and over) and Masters (30 years and over) – Marathon
- Youth (15 – 16 years of age) – 21km
- Cadet (13 – 14 years of age) – 15 Km
- Pupils (10 – 12 years of age) – 8 Km
- Mini (6 – 9 years of age) – 3Km
Race times will be determined by an electronic chip timing system. A digital certificate featuring the finish time for the endurance race will be issued to all participants via email. In line with the entry options above, gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to skaters who finish first, second and third in each age category. All other skaters will receive a participation medal for the endurance race.
Please note that there will be a processing time for the certificates and they will be issued after the event.
There will be a time limit of approximately 3 hours for the marathon endurance race. Skaters aged 17 years and over who may feel that they would be unable to complete the full distance in this time are welcome to enter a half marathon distance (21k) instead. Please note that gold, silver and bronze will not be handed out for this distance, however a participation medal and certificate will still be provided.
Helmets are a mandatory requirement for all FISS affiliated events. Other protective equipment is at the discretion of the skater/their parent or guardian.
Entries close at midnight on 7th August. There is no on the day or late entry for National Level events.
