When:
Sunday, April 17, 2005

Where:
The Rollerdome
aka Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome
900 South 5th Street
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55415 USA

Race Will Be Conducted Like a Time Trial
The Metrodome Inline Marathon will be conducted as a time trial. Pace lines will be allowed with a limit of 5 per pace line. Unique format: Skaters will be sent off individually to skate their 70 laps in the dome. This is not a head to head race, rather, a time trial where drafting is permitted. As you skate you will have the opportunity to jump into new pace lines that fit your speed. When a pace line has 5 skaters in it it's considered "full".

How Skaters Will Count Their 70 Laps
Finish Line Sports will be using the AMB transponder system to track your laps. You will be informed by PA system when you have 5 laps remaining. You will be responsible for counting your final 5 laps.

Start Times Will Vary
Group start times will vary, and within each group, each skater will start at a set increment - for example, skaters may start 15 seconds apart. Skaters will be placed into one of 5 start groups based on previous or estimated marathon performance. For example:

  • Group 1 - 08:00 am
  • Group 2 - 10:00 am
  • Group 3 - 12:00 Noon
  • Group 4 - 02:00 pm
  • Group 5 - 04:00 p.m.

    Registration Fees
  • $30 - On or before March 31, 2005
  • $40 - April 1 to April 16, 2005
  • $60 - On April 17, 2005 (race day)

    Maximum Number of Skaters
    Up to 500 skaters may participate in this event. After the first 500 skaters sign up, registration will be closed. The number of skaters allowed in each paceline will be limited to 5. There will also be a maximum number of skaters allowed on the course at any given time, and that maximum will be announced at a later date.

    Water May Not Be Carried by Skaters
    Water will be available however skaters will not be permitted to carry it with them, and they will not be permitted to drink while skating. No hydration packs will be allowed. There will be a mandatory water pit stop for all participants.
