Race #1- 9:00 SOLO RACE COURSE: BEGINNER and 4 MILE COURSE
Kicking off the event is a Solo Race Course that will start and end in front of Crawdads. The 4-mile racers will go first, followed shortly thereafter by our beginner participants. Beginners will paddle the 1-mile loop a single time, while the 4-milers will paddle it 4 times for a total distance of approximately 4 miles. Beginner paddlers have the option to paddle more laps if they like. Cut off time for the course is 10:30. Paddle away!
$30 registration — all participants receive an event t-shirt and box lunch
Race #2 – 11:00 TEAM RELAY EVENT — 4 person teams
The Relay Event is a fun and entertaining event for all! The course will be located right in front of Crawdads providing an awesome view for spectators to cheer on their favorite teams. Participants will start at the accommodation dock, make a rectangle around 4 buoys, then paddle back to the dock to switch to the next team member. Each team member will paddle the course once for a total of 4 laps.
$140 registration per team — all participants will receive a t-shirt and box lunch
Teams of 4 will compete in assigned heats of 4 teams (total of 16 participants per heat)
Heats organized based on experience level. Teams will be able to choose their experience level during registration.
Individual relay sign ups available during registration. Just register as an individual relay participant ($35) indicating your level and time preference, and we will assemble the teams. You will get confirmation of your team members and contact information in advance
You do not need your own board to participate! FLOW Stand Up Paddle will be providing all life jackets, paddles and boards by BOGA Paddleboards. There will be ONE board for each team of 4.
Costumes encouraged! We will be awarding Crawdads on the River gift cards to the most festive and creative. Dress for fun, but remember to keep it safe.
