This is where we come in and help raise canned food for our local homeless shelter. This will be a push race from point A to point B, you have to find your own route there. Then it will transition into a freeride event at the finish line. Entry fee will be $5.00. I am getting some companies to help out with sponsoring, so they are generous enough to give me some stuff to give out to you guys, so please be generous with bringing canned food for raffle tickets. 3 cans of food for 1 raffle ticket. Please everybody theres a lot of people starving out there, we need to help them. The freeride event will consist of series of events; longest standie, biggest jump, steeziest trick, longest slide. Make sure to practice to show off what you got #swag! More info to come, and more companies to help out. Make sure you bring your helmet, gloves are recomended. Safety first everybody.”

In 1979 – “In one of running’s most heralded ties, Tony Sandoval came across the finish holding hands with Jeff Wells in 2:10:20. ‘We were running together,’ says Sandoval, ‘At the finish, I just put my arm out and Jeff put his arm out. No words were spoken.'”

In 1981 – In that race, Norwegian (Inge Simonsen) and the other winner, American Dick Beardsley, intentionally crossed the finish line, in 2:11:48, holding hands in a dead heat.

In 2011 – HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF – this time on four wheels!

Proving the true spirit of distance skateboarding is alive and well in Florida — Paul Kent and Jeff Vyain cross the Finish together, sharing the 1st and 2nd prize purse!

“Awesomeness yesterday, after a good race only a 0.7 seconds lead on Iemke and so the winner of the very first European skateboard marathon!!
Many thanks to Flavio for the well organised race and for his generosity! Much love for the other distance riders, especially Iemke, the french guys Alexandre Bangnoi, Christopher and Giovanni Barbazza, and Wagga crew Luuts, Lenn en Bas!” (from Paul)

Maribeth McHugh and Cami Best at the Finish

Racers Paul Kent and Conan Gay on the left

Supporter Jordan Evans on the right

20 racers Day1, 15 racers Day2, and 13 made the gauntlet of Day3. Paul astounded all with a 6:45 finish on the third day in near-100 degree heat. Conan launched from the gate and stayed with Paul for the first part of the morning, and just behind them was a “peloton” of Joshua, Jeff, Billy, Andrew, and James. Joshua split from this group and made his surge toward the front, then I felt the effects of heat and pace after a couple hours and pulled back a notch, reducing the peloton to three. Jeff, Andrew and Billy stayed together until Cedartown where Jeff committed himself to a faster pace — and note he was also on the injured list!! By the end, things turned around quite a bit with everyone in the top six throwing down hard.

Greg Feiss pumped to a fast finish on Day1 (as one-day racer), Luke Ayata knocked out most of Day2, with Mario Trujillo pulling him out of a near-exhaustion situation, and a badly injured Marion Karr still had a few pushes to send us all off on Day3. Chadd Hall buttboarded to a 1st day finish with a patented upper-body rubber-sole technique you’ll have to ask him about!

Cami Best aiding an injured Maribeth McHugh all the way to the last day’s finish summed up the true spirit of the weekend. Unforgettable.

Thank you Marion Karr, Skanunu Ken, Rockmart EMT, Chadd and Georgia Hall, all the sponsors who donated time and schwag — and everyone else who supported this amazing, EPIC race!!!

The Night Race Boone to Bush, Salem OR – 2007

When: 9-22-07
Where: Meet at lower parking lot Bush park
Time: 9pm for sign in Race at 9:30pm

The route is 6 miles of night riding with 4 downhill sections a couple parking lots to go thru and one long uphill section. This is an outlaw race so there are cars to watch out for, some smooth pavement, some not so smooth. This is a pretty mellow run and if you can foot brake you can handle it. The finish line is the finish line on the Soap Box Derby track in Bush park.

The course was marked with glow sticks so you can find your way and don’t have to memorize the map.
This is an outlaw race and HELMETS ARE REQUIRED and if there is a bike lane we need to stay in it. Also if you have light use them. The more everyone obeys traffic lays the more likely we will be able to complete the race with out police intervention and be able to continue to have races.

Everyone will get a ticket and the prizes will be raffled off at the end.
So no matter how you do as long as you complete the course you could win a prize.

MARYHILL FESTIVAL OF SPEED 2007

It might not considered “distance” boarding, but 3+ minute runs down the butter smooth, hairpin turns of Maryhill near Goldendale WA means some burning quads!!

I was able to attend only the last day, but got to witness some of the fastest DH racers worldwide, and met a number of people I’d previously known only in the online world. K-Rimes in particular is one of the most chill dudes especially for a guy that’s used to travelling speeds of 60mph++. If Bricin’s band “Loose Tooth” is a mainstay, I’ll go just to see that again.

A few pics follow–

1st Annual ROGUE LDP Race

Alberta, Canada!!!

The prairies are home to the flatlanders, but who has the best flatland legs out there? Twenty kilometers of Edmonton’s scenic bike paths, a real test of endurance, will decide. Saturday, August 18th, we’ll all push for the fastest time.

Up for grabs? TONS of gear, and bragging rights! Sponsored by big-name brands and by Edmonton community shops, the top riders are leaving with sore legs and hands full of swag. Draws and side contests too! As the first fully sanctioned skateboard race in Edmonton we’re pulling all the stops to make future events possible.

This is a charity event with all of the proceeds going to a charity chosen by the winner. Come out and have a good time, good karma and to win some gear!

Barney Bezemer, Marathon Skate from the Netherlands!

Barney sent me this article, I don’t have the translated version but I know he’s pushed some serious marathon miles!!

“..Good to see that I am not the only one! I have a question. Every year
I ride (as a old skool 42 year veteran….) a marathon over 50
kilometers. My best time so far was 2 hours and35 minutes. I have try
to pump as well, but the normal way and step over from one leg to
another every minute is the fastest for me. Now I have the feeling I
can go faster. …”

SKATE FOR MS 2006

It was FLAT and FAST — we weren’t planning to race it hard, then these new guys Rob and Tony showed up pushing like madmen from the start, and we were off! Tony and Blake made the pilgrimage from clear across the state of WA, and Matt Stickle came up from south of Salem OR for his 2nd year in a row.

Seth and Aaron rode the 13 miler and sprinted to a PHOTO finish, just hundreths of a second from each other!

The week after, everyone was discovering muscles they didn’t know existed. It was a great day for it, capping off one of the last distance races in the Seattle area for 2006.

Final Results

24.5-miler:

1- Peters – 01:53:36
2- Koch – 02:02:46
3- Baird – 02:03:18
4- Munson – 02:15:11
5- Stragier – 02:32:38

12.5-miler:

1- Erbeck – 01:29:57.33
2- Zeichner – 01:29:57.57
3- Stickle – mystery time

$11,000 was raised to support Multiple Sclerosis of King County Association. There are a lot of costs for the event which is organized and supported primarily by the inline skate community, with cash donations by a number of companies totalling $5500.

2006 Seattle Solstice Skate

Written by MalakaiKingston
Thursday, 22 June 2006

The sky was blue, the pavement was smooth, and carbon fiber was glistening everywhere. The official Seattle Solstice Skate is a sanctioned, in-line skating event that had been highly anticipated for a ride-along by the local longboard crews. But, the organizers cancelled it without explanation just days prior to the event. Not to be deterred from a chance to get together, nine longboarders showed up early Sunday morning at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington for a ride of their own and the SSS happened, anyway! …

Competitive events are not always synonymous with hard-core racing. For many of us events are mainly a great excuse to skate together. Runners and bikers have known for centuries that the average Janes and Joes make their scene grow. Why else could events like the Boston Marathon attract 40,000 “racers”? The vast majority of our distance skateboarding podium champs over the last decade have proven to be well-rounded and level-headed skaters who skate street, parks, vert, pools, downhill, and slalom. Skate fast and skate hard – at the end of the day it all comes back to the brotherhood of skateboarding.

Send me your submissions for upcoming races and I’ll post them to this page!
