The URF consists mainly of 2 events
UDINE ROLLER: skating on the streets of the city!
The “zero impact” town route: skating along Udine streets for about 15km to celebrate the World Environment Day, proving that we can pursue a sustainable mobility. The track changes every year.
This is a non-competitive event and is suitable for people of all ages, including beginners, providing they are capable of braking without assistance.
Assistance: there will be experienced skating staff along the track. Medical assistance will be provided and a van will follow the group to provide assistance should you have problems with your skates or need a ride.
