How to register as an individual skater


You can register online on the London Inline Marathon website (www.londoninlinemarathon.com) and pay through the PayPal system. Alternatively you can download and print a form from the website and send it with a cheque for the appropriate amount. We regret that we can only accept UK cheques in pounds sterling (GBP).


Deadline

Online registration and payment will be open up to Monday 20th of August 2018 , 23:00, or until all available entries are taken.

Classifications


Besides the overall classifications, there are separate age-group classifications.


Results, Awards and Prizes


All results will be made available through the www.londoninlinemarathon.com web pages as soon as possible after the race.

Awards will be given to the first three skaters in various categories in each race.  A cash prize may be awarded to the overall winner of the full London Inline Marathon.


Timing


This year we will be using an active transponder timing system provided by DB Max. Due to the high cost of the transponders all entrants will be required to sign for their timing chip at the race registration desk.  An additional fully refundable deposit of £10 will also be required on the day.  The transponder then must be returned after the race where it will be signed back in and the £10 deposit will be refunded.

IMPORTANT If you lose or damage your timing chip you will be charged a £65 replacement fee

Chip rental is included in your entry fee.

The timing chip must not be changed in any way.

The chip must be attached on the boot in the lace area or on the ankle with the provided cable or strip (It must NOT be attached to the metal frame of a skate)

No chip - no classification!


Confirmation


Confirmation of entry will be sent only if requested and the competitor provides an email address.

Course


The course is one mile long, so the Full Marathon will be 26 laps, and the Half Marathon will be 13 laps. The track is smooth asphalt, running anti-clockwise with some undulations, bends and a gentle hill.
For the London Inline Marathon, a lap counter will be positioned adjacent to the Start/Finish line. A bell will be rung at the beginning of the final lap for the lead skaters/groups.
For the Quad / Inline Challenge races, an airhorn will be sounded at the end of 30 minutes. Each skater can finish the lap they are currently on, and this will count as part of their total however no new laps can be started after the horn is sounded.

Further details of the course can be seen here


First Aid


Emergency First Aid will be provided.


Refreshment and Water Stations


Course: A water station will be situated at the trackside providing water to participants throughout their race.

Refreshments will be available for sale from the velodrome cafe, situated in the upper level of the velodrome.
