Although the legend of Pheidippides' 25-mile trek from Marathon to Athens is well known to most, history neglected to mention the racer’s chariot-shaped skateboard or failed attempt to nosegrind the roof of the Acropolis. Re-create history as it really happened with today's Groupon to the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon, pushing off at Governors Island on Saturday, July 30, at 7 a.m. Choose between the following options:

• For $9, you get one entry in the 2.6-mile Kids/Beginner Challenge race (a $35 value).
• For $39, you get one entry in the full 26.2-mile skateboard marathon race (a $100 value).

The Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon flips the switch on its 2011 tour in New York City, as boarders from around the world converge at Governors Island for a marathon-length race in pursuit of a $15,000 first-place bounty. After ferrying to the island at 6 a.m. in an inflatable half-pipe, contestants line up at Picnic Point, where, at 7 a.m. sharp, they embark on a 12-lap odyssey around the island's perimeter. As the park prepares to re-open to the general public after the contest's three-hour conclusion, live music and a sponsored exposition entertain the crowd while race officials bestow pairs of gold, silver, and bronze-plated Airwalks to the top finishers in each age group.

Designed for skaters with a competitive edge but not the endurance or experience for a full marathon, the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon Kids/Beginner Challenge sends beginners and boarders under age 13 on one recreational lap around the course. Though the 2.6-mile race is merely a fraction of the main event, the Kids/Beginner Challenge delivers the same sportsmanship and flaming obstacle course as its longer counterpart.
