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.

Skate Disciplines you may participate in:

Individual- You make all the miles, set your own schedule and goal during the 24 hours.

  • Skateboard Push (only foot pushing or pumping your skateboard.)

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 1.46/2 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.
