You do not need to be an expert skater to participate, but participation will help you to become one!  NOTE: These are scheduled each week by Coach Greg.  If you’d like to be added to his distribution list, please respond to this email and let us know.

Fitness Inline Training (FIT) Program: Sundays at 9:00 AM until September 24th
The mission of the Skater’s Quest Fitness Inline Training (FIT) Program is to equip inline skating enthusiasts with specific skills and exercises to meet their health and fitness goals whether it be to cross the finish line after participating in a skating event, lose weight, get in shape or simply improve inline skating skills.  The main focus is endurance training and has been developed for you to train for the 10k, Half Marathon or Full Marathon distances at the SkateDC 2023 Marathon on September 30th.
On September 30th, we are excited to present the 8th Annual SkateDC Marathon (formerly known as the “Skater’s Quest Trail Event”) as part of SkateDC 2023. If you have never participated in an endurance skating event, this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself & have fun on a great trail.
