About the Race

The 2019 Homestead-Miami Ultraskate

Hosted at the world famous Homestead-Miami Speedway in Miami, FL, this is the only Ultra event of its kind in the United States. Over the course of 24 hours, skaters will test their worth to skate as many miles as they can. Skate a little or skate a lot, the fun doesn’t stop until the clock does!

24 Hour Ultra Skate is a skateboard endurance event to answer the simple question, “How far can one go on a skateboard?” The 24-hour Ultra Skate was a concept brought to skateboard riding in 2006, by James Peters – creator of Paved Wave, the soul of distance skateboarding. In Seattle Washington, James was at the forefront of the “skateboarding-as-transportation” scene and created the Ultra Skate as an extension of his passion. What started as a low-key event at GreenLake park, James set some of the initial 24-hour distance records by himself and was the first to make the 200 mile club. The 24 Hour Ultra Skate has now grown into an international event with multiple races across the globe and competitors’ hitting the 300 mile club.  All of the 24-hour events follow the same rules and share unified records and world rankings. The 24-hour Ultra Skate at Homestead-Miami Speedway is home to the United States’ 24-hour event, held annually for all to come and test their physical and mental strength.

The track that we use for 24 hours is the outer most oval path and the pit road at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The loop measures 1.46 miles around, skated counter clockwise. The track is made up of lightly pitted asphalt on turns 1,2,3 and 4 and smooth concrete on pit road.

You may compete in the event as an Individual skateboarder, Stand Up Paddle skateboarder (Strictly paddling, no foot pushing), Push/Paddle (Using your feet and a Paddle) or as a 4 person relay team (One rider at a time).

The Homestead-Miami 24-hour Ultra Skate recognizes and awards participants for distance benchmarks (Individual)- 100 miles, 150 miles, 200 miles, 250 miles and 300 miles.
