The Adrenalina Skate Marathon is held once a year on Fiesta Island in San Diego, California. In 2014, 142 skaters from all around the globe came to compete in this major skate event. There’s a 3.5 hour limit for this 42km battle of fitness, endurance and skateboarding prowess.
Since 2011, the Adrenalina Skate Marathon has been committed to raising awareness for Parkinson’s Research. A percentage of the skaters’ registration fees will be donated to the Summit for Stem Cell (S4SC). S4SC is a grass roots, volunteer-led fundraising organization supporting non-embryonic stem cell research, and operates under the nonprofit status of the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego (PASD).
Ionic Flux Team Rider Thomas C Slager (NL) came in 2nd in 2013. Last year, he came back determined to win, and after 1 hour and 33 minutes Thomas was the first skater to cross the finish line. As Thomas told us in a recent interview, he’s aiming for even better results in 2015.
