A first of its kind, a battle of fitness, endurance, and action sports.The Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon is a 26.2 mile longboard race set to promote health & fitness, as well as the lifestyle that is Action Sports. The race consists of multiple laps around a course designed to showcase different cities around the world. Cities visited in 2011 were New York City, Caguas, Plano, Hallandale Beach and San Diego. The marathon feel will allow for spectators to be entertained throughout the day as they cheer the competitors of the skateboard marathon race.
The idea for the modern marathon was inspired by the legend of an ancient Greek messenger who raced from the site of Marathon to Athens, a distance of about 40 kilometers, or nearly 25 miles, with the news of an important Greek victory over an invading army of Persians in 490 B.C. After making his announcement, the exhausted messenger collapsed and died. To commemorate his dramatic run, the distance of the 1896 Olympic marathon was set at 40 kilometers.
