Club Tartu Maraton’s long time dream to organize the first inline skating marathon was mainly stuck for finding a proper asphalt roads for the race. The dream came true in August 2007. On the 26th of August the first edition of Tartu Rulluisumaraton took place. The race starts from the city and takes the skaters to the borough of Tartu - the 16 km lap has good asphalt. Many specialists were rather pessimistic about the success of inline skating marathon and did not expect very many participants but against all hopes the first race gathered altogether over 900 skaters.
The number was gained mostly thanks to the popularity of other events organised by Club Tartu Maraton. Many people who have taken part in other events did not want to miss the unique possibility to be a part of the beginning of a new event. A year later, already 1114 people crossed the finish line of the SEB 2. Tartu Rulluisumaraton. The third edition already gathered more than 2000 participants.
Like a tradition this race also has accompanied races for children. With one difference – they are held on the same day just before main starts!
