ROLLER SPORTS MANITOBA ANNOUNCES THE 6TH ANNUAL
NORTH OF THE 49TH INLINE RACES

WINNIPEG, MB (August 13, 18, 2003) Inline skating enthusiasts from the USA and Canada will descend upon Birds Hill Park Saturday August 23, 2003 for the 6th annual North of the 49th Inline Races. Birds Hill Park was the scenic site of the 1999 Pan Am Games inline marathon and is renown for its smooth, fast asphalt. Past winners of this exciting event include ageless wonder Terry Holm, and Olympic medallist Cindy Klassen.

Roller Sports Manitoba is the governing body and sole sanctioning body for roller sports in Manitoba as recognised by the Canadian Olympic Association. RSM is a non-partisan, non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of quality and pursuit of excellence in skating. As such the premier event, the marathon, caters to both Pro and Fitness/Recreational skaters with various age and sex categories. North of the 49th also includes a marathon relay which divides the distance amongst a team of four skaters for Fitness/Recreational athletes. Roller Sports Manitoba puts skaters first by offering in excess of $1000 in prize money. In addition, the races have averaged over $2000 in merchandise draw prizes and of course there are medals for all categories. To further help with the speed skating experience, we are pleased to announce that this year Glenn Koshi of Bont will be present to custom mould skates.

Come for the race and stay for the free barbecue.
