He's Going The Distance

And he won't be alone. Some of you will recall Karr's ride across North Carolina, a ten day excursion which covered over 500 miles. This event, The Chief Ladiga Silver Comet Sk8 Challenge 2011, is being billed as "The first long distance skateboarding stage race ever to be held." According to information on the event's facebook page, "Long distance skateboarders from around the world will be descending on the 94 miles long Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Bike Trail that runs from Smyrna (Atlanta), Georgia to Weaverville (Anniston, AL) for three days of racing that will total approximately 180 miles plus!" The race will proceed " to provide clean water to people in countries who need it." Sign up is available at
