What is the NorthShore Inline Marathon?

Join the United State's largest Inline Marathon

The NorthShore Inline Marathon is one of the most prestigious inline speed skating events in the world. Founded in 1996 by Olympian George Hovland, the NorthShore Inline Marathon (NSIM) quickly grew, becoming the world's largest skating race and has had competitors including Olympians, professional hockey players (NHL), professional speed skaters, and more. Constantly ranked in the top 5 Inline marathons in the world, the NSIM marathon is aiming to take its spot back as the world's largest. NSIM's race travels over the beautiful scenic Highway 61. The race is between Two Harbors and Duluth, Minnesota on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior.

In the pursuit of creating events for all competitors, NSIM added events for all ages and abilities. Our 2023 Race Event weekend will be September 15-17th. It includes our NorthShore Inline Marathon, the NorthShore Half Marathon Skate, a combined skate(39.3 miles), and our Tunnel 10k skate.
