NorthShore Inline Marathon to add rollerskiing marathon

Posted by: Howie Hanson Updated: July 25, 2011 - 1:53 PM

A new athletic event will be added to NorthShore Inline Marathon’s race weekend.

Marathon executive director Skeeter Moore announced today that his organization will launch the nation’s first rollerskiing marathon on Saturday, September 17, following the start of the 16th annual NorthShore Inline Marathon.

“I am very pleased and excited to announce that the NorthShore Inline Marathon will be adding a rollerskiing division to the 2011 race, held on September 17 after the last wave of inline skaters,” said Moore. “As the new executive director I am looking for ways to expand our event and rollerskiing is a perfect fit. This marathon distance race for rollerskiing is the first of its kind in the United States.”

Moore is also hopeful that the new rollerski division will positively accent the largest inline marathon in the nation and provide an opportunity for additional sport enthusiasts to enjoy the spectacular course that follows the shore of Lake Superior from Two Harbors to Duluth. Read more.
