Rules

and Info

Course Etiquette

  1. Ultra Skate is a sanctioned Skate IDSA event and follows all the rules set by the IDSA. Any questions of what equipment may be allowed then referred to www.theidsa.org. and look under Official Rules.
  2. If you’re out on the track skating, you’re wearing a helmet. NO EXCEPTIONS
  3. Your distance skated is counted by full laps completed. If time expires and you did not complete the final lap it will not count.
  4. NO Support crew on the track, they may assist skaters from the “Pit Road” support area only.
  5. Please keep the track clean. There are trash cans on pit road. If we are tough enough to skate for 24 hours then we can hold our trash for 1.46/1.38 miles. We are guests here at Homestead Speedway, let’s be respectful. NO ALCOHOL or GLASS BOTTLES allowed on the riding course.
  6. Treat the Ultra-skate as a personal quest more than a race. You will go through a lot during a 24-hour period. This event will challenge you physically and mentally. This event can be as intense as you make it. We all have our milestones that we are trying to reach but listen to your body and skate within your ability. Your health is the top priority here. Race directors may pull you from the track if there is any concern of safety.
