It's been 14 years since Greg's tragic death. Skaters will honor him on Sun. Apr. 9 at  Canada Road in San Mateo.
Greg Levien, one of San Francisco's best in-line skaters, died on Friday, May 1, 1992 in a hiking accident in San Francisco.

A former member of the Golden Gate Park Skate Patrol, Greg Levien had earned the reputation of being among the top inline skaters on a national level. He participated in three skate-a-thons from San Francisco to Los Angeles in the "Skate Against Crack and Violence" in 1989, 1990 and 1991. He won second place in the longest skate race in the world from Fresno to Bakersfield (April, 1991, 138 miles in 9 hrs. 34 min.)

Greg also won the overall championships in the Kryptonics California Championship Series two years in a row (1990, 1991) scoring over 450 points in 1991 in sprint racing, distance racing, high jump, long jump, and downhill slalom. Greg won the 1991 Cinco de Mayo skate race, the Mt. Tam Hill Climb in 1990 and 1991 and finished among the top in many other races and competitions. He was definitely the athlete who could do it all.

History will look back at Greg Levien as one of the true pioneers of our sport. His will to win, his enthusiasm, and fierce competitive spirit will live on the hearts and minds all the people who knew him. The California Outdoor

Rollerskating Association will present the "Greg Levien 50 Kilometer Memorial Race" in his honor in the spring of every year.
