Welcome to the Metrodome Inline Marathon – The world’s only indoor skating marathon! .
The Metrodome Inline Marathon was originally introduced to the Metrodome as a welcoming and friendly environment for the first time marathon skater all they way up to the professionals. This event is utilized by some skaters to “get in shape” for the up coming marathon season, and by other individuals to challenge their bodies to go further then they have ever gone before. With a full marathon, half marathon and team competition, the Metrodome Inline Marathon is like no other marathon in the world.
We are proud to be the first event of the 2012 NROC series. This is a national program that you may be interested in doing. Click the logo for more information. Note that an NROC license is NOT required to participate in this event.
Contratulations to everyone that participated in the Metrodome Inline Marathon - it was an exciting day of racing and achievements! See you all again next year!
Registration is now open for the 8th annual Metrodome Inline Marathon. We are excited to be back skating inside of the Metrodome, and we are VERY excited to be able to offer this unique event to the skating community again
