2017 36th Athens to Atlanta Road Skate (A2A.net) in Georgia USA

2017.10.08 7:30 am
America/New York

From their website, a2a.net, which has lots of information under "TELL ME MORE":

Athens to Atlanta (A2A) is the oldest and most famous road skate in America. Starting in Athens, Georgia, participants skate through beautiful country roads and quiet suburbia before navigating city streets and triumphantly crossing the finish line in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. The course is challenging and requires experienced road skating ability, courage and stamina. Skaters who may not be ready for the whole 87 miles may opt for the 38-mile event, which also starts in Athens, or the 49-mile event, which starts near Dacula, GA. Inline and quad skaters are welcome and anyone from 8 to 80 years old may enter.

 

Roadskater.net inline skaters have done A2A as many as 18 times in a row. Familiar names can be found on the A2A Duraskaters (Distance) records page.

2014 Berlin Inline Skate Marathon Video

Here's another skate marathon video (helmet cam) from Europe in 2014. The road surfaces look great! Video is over 1 hour long. 

The packs start to thin out after about ten minutes. Closed roads. Church bells. Bystanders cheering. Tramlines. "Paß auf!". Street musicians and the Doppler effect.

Puente la Reina 2014 Inline Speed Skating International Marathon

This looks like a great event. Very A2A-ish, hillwise, but marathon distance. There are some pretty technical hills on the course by the looks of it. 

 

I believe a blind skater completed the race, aided by a paceline buddy. I don't know anything other than the name of the event and what's visible in the video, but I will add to this as I find out more, if I get time.
