2005Napaskatepic4.jpg (228194 bytes) There are a precious few opportunities to ride on the leading edge of our sport. If you are looking for an inline marathon that caters specifically to you, the inline skater, not the cyclists, the runners or others,  you will not experience a more fun, exciting skating weekend as the one we are planning for you in one of America's most beautiful areas, the world Famous Napa Valley

DMJ Sports Marketing along with the California Outdoor Rollersports Association would like to invite you all to come ride that leading edge with us as we present the 2010 Napa Valley Inline Marathon and Half Marathon.

Skaters will roll past the vineyards and wineries along a 7 mile closed section of the Silverado Trail in the world famous Napa Wine Valley. The course is totally closed to traffic for the race.

The course has everything that makes a fantastic roadskate from the long stretches of flatland to rolling hills.  The course has been changed to remove some of the more dangerous downhill sections. The road is very smooth "black ice" asphalt all the way and will be totally closed to cars during the event.

We will have two distances for participants of  26.2 mile marathon and a 13.1 mile half marathon distance for recreational and fitness skaters .

2005NapaPics 1.JPG (22738 bytes) WILL THE ROAD BE CLOSED TO TRAFFIC?

Yes.  A 4.5 mile section of the Silverado Trail will be closed to all traffic for three hours.   The California Highway Patrol will block off every intersection during the race keeping ALL cars off the road and keep you safe

IS THIS A "RACE" ?          

Yes, if you’re racing and no if you’re going at your own pace.. The event will be timed. The elite racers will be able to race unimpeded along the course. We are not a huge corporate event like others large inline events. .The event is designed more for the recreational or fitness skater.


The Napa Valley Inline Marathon and Half Marathon is designed to give all levels of skaters a fantastic skating experience. It's great racing for the hard core racers.  It's a high mark of accomplishment for the fitness skater or enthusiast.  It's an absolute blast for the recreational skater. There is a little something for all. You can wear 4 wheel blades, 5 wheel blades or even "quad" conventional roller skates.

Every participant will receive an event T shirt. Prizes will be awarded to top 5 men and women in the elite class and to the top three men and women in each age category in the citizen class skaters

26 miles on the Silverado Trail is a lot to bite off for a first time inline skater. If this is your first time in a roadskate event, we invite you to come participate in the Half Marathon at the C.O.R.A. member rate.  E-mail if you have never participated in an inline race before.

Outdoor skating is a fantastic way to get a great workout while having a great time. The closed roads create "recreational asphalt" where youth and adults alike can have an opportunity to experience what a great sport and fun, healthy activity inline skating and roller skating can be.  There will be skates available along with helmets and pads for those Napa Valley residents ready to give inline skating a try the morning of the race along the flat, safe portion of the roadway.

Finding a place to stay in the Napa Valley is always a difficult situation as the Napa Wine Country is a very popular place where people plan many months in advance to visit. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to find a hotel. Most skaters are staying at the Napa Valley Redwood Inn in Napa. 

They have served as our host hotel in the past when the race started in Napa. The Napa Valley Redwood Inn is located in the heart of Napa Valley in historic Napa. Their central location allows you the opportunity to visit the valley's many attractions without spending all day traveling to get there.
