The 23 Annual NorthShore Inline Marathon (NSIM) from Two Harbors to Duluth, MN will take place on Saturday, September 15, 2018. The NSIM is the largest inline skating race in America.
The NorthShore Inline Marathon continues to be the largest inline skating race in North America, with nearly 1,500 skaters participating. The NSIM was founded in 1995 as the brainchild of Olympic skier, Duluth resident George Hovland, and the first race was on September 14, 1996.
The NorthShore Inline Marathon, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization in Duluth, MN. The mission of NSIM is to promote inline skating to the world and to get people outside and active.

Finish line has been altered for the first time in 23 years due to construction on Harbor Drive along the final 500 feet of the historic course. The finish line has been moved approximately 800 feet back along the course, making the marathon distance races 26.0 miles. Course records and age group records will be void for 2018.
“The course is really good shape. The Scenic 61 sections are all holding up really nicely, and a fresh 5-mile portion leading into Brighton Beach was repaved last year and is super smooth with great views. Skaters are treated to awesome pavement in the I-35 freeway tunnels,” said Race Director Mike Ward.
