* Marathon date: Sunday, April 17
* The Metrodome Inline Marathon will be conducted as a time trial. Pace lines will be allowed with a limit of 5 per pace line.
* Unique format: Skaters will be sent off individually to skate their 70 laps in the dome; this is not a head to head race, rather, a time trial where drafting is permitted.
* As you skate you will have the opportunity to jump into new pace lines that fit your speed. When a pace line has 5 skaters in it it's considered "full".
* Finish Line Sports will be using the AMB transponder system to track your laps. You will be informed by PA system when you have 5 laps remaining. You will be responsible for counting your final 5 laps.
