Because running a marathon is pretty silly unless you do it balancing a tray of Champagne while dressed as a waiter, The Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon is back in full effect after an initial test run (roll?) last year, now hosting the first-ever World Skateboard Marathon Championships, where you and champs from ‘thons in other cities will longboard through a grueling 26.2mi course around town. The deal:
There’s also a two-mile course for beginners and kids on which you can use any board, and you can easily watch the mayhem go down at spectator spots scattered throughout the course. But that's not it! Expect a massive expo village with tons of for-sale new gear, professional demos on shortboards and go pads from Paul Hurtado, a live DJ, and a nifty device that simulates surfing called a FlowRider -- which, if it's anything like your regular surfing, will leave you Low.
