This is a Relay Race for teams of 5 skaters, from the Dead Sea [on the Jordanian side], to Aqaba, on the Red Sea.
It starts at 2 am ... and you have 14 hours to complete the 250 km distance.
The event is also open to teams of cyclists and teams of runners.
This is their website -
The website has not been updated yet for the 2014 event, so it still says that it is open to cyclists and runners; however the organisers have confirmed that they will be allowing skaters to compete this year, on a trial basis.
We already have 1 team of skaters from the UK. There will also be at least 1 French team, and possibly a team of Belgian skaters too.
