April 9th, 2016 was the 1st annual Menifee Half Marathon skate, held in Menifee, California. Team SAFE showed great support of the event with 9 skaters suited up and ready to skate.
Although the course was only a half marathon it was fun with hills to up the Challenge. This new race is a great opener for the outdoor season.
At 9:00am approximately 60 skaters hit the start line ready to go. As the race began the lead pack broke down to around 25 skaters which stayed together for most of the race. At the end it was Team SAFE's Jens Johansson finishing in first place overall. SAFE's Chris Rojo and Kimon Papahadjopoulos finished 6th and 7th overall.
In the women's division Team SAFE skater Brittney Schultz hit the podium with third place overall.
Team SAFE is off to a good start for the 2016 season and we look forward to our next race... See you at the start line!
