Marc keeping things running.
About 20 skaters of various ages took to Route 60 in Milton, WV on Sunday, September 25, 2011 to compete in the Milton Mile, a one mile push race organized by Marc's Board Shop. Prizes were awarded in both new school and longboard/unlimited classes. The event took place just before the Pumpkin Festival parade, and was an overall success which left organizers feeling optimistic about this being a recurring event. The four lanes of US Route 60 were blocked off thirty minutes before the parade, providing a window of opportunity as well as an open safe course lined with hundreds of spectators.
