SKATE CHALLENGE: *FREE GIFTS GUARANTEED TO FIRST 50 SKATERS REGISTERED!! T-shirt orders are being submitted now, so please register early to ensure a shirt! Got a bucket list? Well this should be on it! This year's skate challenge will be a long race, circling the Munroe Falls Lake. You will skate over bridges and hills, and learn from other experienced skaters in the process. This is a gateway race for all those wanting to start competing in outdoor skate races/marathons. (We have added a 5K option for those who asked.) You will also get the chance to have some fun!!! For those who aren't trying to set land-speed records, come out and have a blast skating around the park with your favorite Derby skaters while listening to music from our DJ, or sign up with a friend and wear matching COSTUMES! (Would love to give a special gift to anyone showing up with a costume!) The important thing here is that you GET THERE. Half the battle is showing up at the starting line. To reward those who have the GUTS TO GET THERE, we will make sure that everyone who preregisters for the race (and shows up) receives a t-shirt.
