The NYC Skate Marathon & 100k takes place every year on the fourth Saturday of September. This is a great race because it strives to be very inclusive, echoing the nature of New York City itself. Participants include a wide spectrum of people from young children to senior citizens. There are separate divisions for inline and quad skaters, and the event does get quite a few quad skaters that take up the challenge. Distance options include 5k (3.35 miles), half marathon (13.1 miles or 21k), full marathon (26.2 miles or 42k) and the 100k (64 miles), and for the first time, a relay option.
