SkateDC Weekend

Friday, October 1 - Sunday, October 3, 2021

Friday, October 1 - Sunday, October 3, 2021

SkateDC 2021 is a celebration of DC skating! Washington Area Roadskaters is pairing up with Skater's Quest, DC Inner City Excellence (DC-ICE), and local quad skating groups. Do you like street skating? Racing? Trail skating? Quad skating? Skate parks? Skate dancing? If so, then we have something for you!

2021 is a year of experiments and improvising, so we're mixing things up - and we'll be updating as things develop. We'll see DC's classic monuments and scenes, including a Covid memorial on the National Mall, with one flag for every USA Covid death. We'll also start a skate - including timed marathon and half-marathon options! - at the Indian Head Rail Trail in Maryland. That's a 45-minute drive from Freedom Plaza, so we'll help you to find carpool buddies (offer or ask in the discussion), and we may rent additional transportation, if needed. We may even add another skate or two. We aren't planning on an event hotel at this point. In past years, people preferred to find their own lodgings. But if there's sufficient demand, we'll get something in the works.

All skates will begin and end at Freedom Plaza, other than the Indian Head Rail Trail events, which will begin at the trailhead in Boyds, MD. Skates depart 15 minutes after the group-up times.

It's a social-street-skating weekend, not a race. Helmets required. Participants on quads, inlines, boards, bikes are welcome, please join us!
