Welcome to Rollin’ on the River Inline Marathon!
Welcome to Rollin on the River Inline Marathon. Our race is on a flat course that goes along the Red River. There are no hills on our course, however there are a few small climbs to get on and off of the Greenway, which is a part of our course. Helmets are Required to participate, and there is a three hour time limit to complete the race.
Racers receive a race shirt during packet pick-up and will receive their finisher medal once they cross the finish line.
