The Minnesota Inline Grand Prix Series is a fun and friendly way to compare yourself to other regional skaters.  The Grand Prix seeks to maintain and increase participation in the sport of inline speed skating.  Full rules can be found below.  The inline events that will make up the 2016 Minnesota Inline Grand Prix are the following:

2016 Minnesota Inline Grand Prix Events

June 18th (Saturday) Apostle Island Inline Marathon Madeline Island, WI

June 25 (Saturday)   Roll for the Roses 10k Roseville, MN

July 23rd (Saturday) Chicagoland Inline Marathon Hoffman Estates, IL

August 6th (Saturday) Minnesota Half Marathon St. Paul, MN

August 27 (Saturday) Rollin’ On The River Grand Forks, ND

September 17 (Saturday) NorthShore Inline Marathon Duluth MN

2016 Minnesota Inline Grand Prix Results:

By a mere 3 points, the equivalent of about four seconds in a marathon, or one place in a half marathon, Kelin Dunfee edges Jeffery Swider-Peltz Jr.  Dunfee picked up full points in Apostle Island, Roll for the Roses, Rolling on the River, and finished just five seconds back in the Northshore Inline Marathon.  Jeffery Swider Peltz Jr. picked up full points in Apostle Island, and Chicagoland, finished second in the Minnesota Half Marathon, and finished four seconds back in the Northshore Inline Marathon.  Dunfee benefited from not having to race head to head against Swider-Peltz in Roll for the Roses and Rollin’ On the River.  When the two did go head to head Swider-Peltz had the better of it in Apostle Island (though they received the same score), Chicagoland, the Minnesota Half, finished ahead of him in the Northshore (though both received the same point total), but only a skaters top four scores count.

Skaters have two weeks from the day results are posted to raise any issues, after the expiration of that period of time the results are deemed final. If you believe you should be in the top 25, or a race is missing from your scoring, please do let me know.

How the series works:

1. The Minnesota Inline Grand Prix (MIGP) series in run by InlineSkateMpls LLC and is free. Money is not exchanged or distributed in any way, nor is money earned from this series.  This series is independent of the races, and the races are independent of the series.  Being in the MIGP series does not include entry into any races in the series.  You do not need to register for the MIGP series; if you participate in one of the above races, you may be in the series.

2.  Scoring:

    • Marathon:  Points are awarded based on an event’s official times (to the extent they are deemed accurate).  The first place MIGP skater in each race will score 1,000 points.  All others earn points based upon the percentage of time back of the first place finisher.  Points are awarded without regard to age division or sex.
    • Half Marathon, 10k, and shorter:  Skaters score according to their finish place out of all racers.  The first MIGP skater in each race will score 1,000 points.  All others will score based upon the percentile in which the MIGP skaters finish such that the middle finisher will score 500 points.  The MIGP will presume a minimum of 75 entrants.  Points are awarded without regard to age division or sex.

3. Only a skater’s 4 highest event scores will count.  Anyone racing in 4 or fewer races will have all of their scores included.

  • Skaters who do not compete in one of the first two events may or may not be included in future MIGP calculations.
  • Skaters do not change age divisions (or sex) during the year.
  • Participants will be vying for the honor of being identified as the best and to make the prestigious Top 25.

4. While some events have both full & half marathons, only the longest event will be counted in the Grand Prix totals.

5.  AF Rule: In the event of a tie at the top, the following tie breakers will decide the overall winner: The skater with the Most Race Wins; if there is still a tie then: Of each skaters four scores that are counted toward each skaters point total, the skater with the lowest total amount of time behind the winner will be declared champion.  (Remember in a marathon more than one skater can score 1000 points).  If there is still a tie then Co-Champions are declared.

6. CE Rule: participants have two weeks from the posting of an event’s MIGP scores to contest the results.  After two weeks results are deemed final.
