This is not a race, this is a casual pace group ride just for fun. Skaters of all skill levels and styles are welcome, not only those participating in Ultra Skate. Before we start the 25 mile group ride on the Gainesville-Hawthorne trail, we will first give away some prizes in a quick scavenger hunt race. The Official 24-Hour Ultra Skate Race is on January 17th - 18th, 2020 at the Homestead Miami Speedway. If you are interested in Ultra Skate or just want to learn more about long distance skateboarding in general, come on out and have some fun!
