Event Type: 2.26 Miles, Half Marathon and One Mile Guinness Record

  1. The longboard races will occur on Saturday January 4th, 2014. The longboard races will consist of a three course race, open to all age groups both male and female.  There will be a one mile race for the Guinness World Record™, a ½ marathon and a kids/beginners race. The International distance skateboard association will sanction this Flager ½ Marathon and 1 Mile Guinness World Record™  longboard race to help grow the sport as well as provide insurance for the event. The event will be held in Flagler Beach.  The longboard Races will utilize a proprietary stop watch print timing system. All competitors will be required to wear a bib in order to keep an exact count of competitors and official times. There will be two water stations set-up for the ½ marathon race, the first at the turn around point on the Lehigh trail .27 mile east of Old Kings Lane.
    1. ½ Marathon race is open to any participant that wants to challenge their endurance. The race will Start and Finish at Wadsworth. Once the last participant begins their second lap at Wadsworth Park, the kids/beginner participants will follow behind the pack . The race will end at Wadsworth Park.
    2. The Kids/Beginner Challenge is designed to encourage spectator and community participation in the event. The challenge will be a race that follows Roberts Road to Colbert Lane and back (2.26 miles). The goal for the Challenge is to form a foundation in which we could continue to build into an event that involves, engages, and gives back to the community. The kids race course will begin and end at Wadsworth Park.
    3.  If you are up to try and break the 1 Mile Guinness World Record of 3 minutes and 35 seconds held by Steven Sanchez, we have that race as well.The 1 mile race is for the fastest time on a longboard for the Guinness World Record™.  The course will run along A1A, with street closures required for 25-30 minutes.
