Sunday, October 30, 2005 - 9:15 A.M. Start

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, it seems that you are not ready to call it quits on the 2005 C.O.R.A. race season. Skaters are calling for another 50K race in California, especially Tom McCue, one of the founding members of C.O.R.A. He will be going under the knife in early November to fix a foot problem, so we need to do this before this happens.

Due to popular demand we will present the final inline road race of the 2005 race season on Sunday, October 31, 2005 as we present the Halloween Surprise 10 - 30 - 50 Kilometer Roadskate.

The race will be a part of the big Halloween Skate Weekend in San Francisco. It will begin with the Halloween Friday Night Skate on Fri. Oct. 28, the Halloween Roller Disco Party at the Redwood Roller Rink on Sat,. Oct. 29 and the race on Canada Road on Sun. Oct. 30.  If you can stay for the 31st,  we'll roll up into the Castro with 500,00 others for San Francisco's largest Halloween celebration which includes a skate through the city and into the Castro.

Participants can race in the 50 Kilometer Race or they can choose to race the 10 Kilometer race
or the 30 kilometer race. 1 lap = 10 kilometers, 3 laps is 30 kilometers and 5 laps = 50 kilometers. 

The San Mateo Park Patrol will close off the road at 9:00 A.M. The races will begin at 9:15 A.M.

You will not find a better race venue than the closed off  4 mile section of Canada road between Highway 92 and Edgewood Road along the Crystal Springs Reservoir in San Mateo Ca.  The course is rolling hills and smooth asphalt all the way and completely closed to cars. Racers will skate along the course to the 180 turn 3.1 miles from the start.  There will be course marshals to make sure the turn is free of bike or pedestrian traffic and safe for your racing experience.  

The entry fees for each event is $20.00 CORA members and members of USARS,  $30.00 non-members
