SantaSkate Rules and Guidelines

At LondonSkate we take the safety of all those participating very seriously (even when wearing a Santa suit!) and urge you to read these rules and guidelines to make the event as smooth and enjoyable as possible for all concerned.

  • Participation is entirely at your own risk
  • You must be over 16 years of age unless accompanied by a responsible adult
  • You must be able to stop, turn and control your speed efficiently on skates
  • Stay behind the lead Marshal

  • Always leave room for Marshals to pass on your right
  • Skate with care and consideration for others and try not to cause obstruction

SKATERS THAT BEHAVE BADLY OR IGNORE THESE RULES WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE SKATE

To prevent traffic entering the body of the skate we ask that you try to close gaps and stay in front of the rear marshal. If you are having difficulties and fall behind the rear marshal you may be asked to leave the skate but are always welcome to come back to try again another week

LondonSkate recommends that you wear protective equipment/clothing and that your skates are well maintained

GUIDELINES FOR EVERYONES ENJOYMENT

  • Check behind you before changing direction
  • Be prepared to stop and move suddenly
  • Keep up with the pack
  • Try to refrain from holding hands
  • Be aware of the Sound System especially when it is behind you
  • Skate sensibly through the park especially in the dark
  • Respect the city and its other road users; cyclists, we recommend that you learn to skate but if you do insist on coming along please stay behind the rear marshal at all times
  • Respect the volunteers that make this event possible
  • And most importantly SMILE its Christmas! (And bring some mistletoe)
