About This Activity

Taste the salty life at the Inaugural Skipjack 5K/10K to benefit local charities!
Admire the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Fleet as you cross Deal Island Bridge - it is the last commercial sail powered fishing fleet in North America and the only cohesive sailing fleet in the western hemisphere. Catch the osprey fishing for their final meals in our marsh creeks before they retire south for the winter. Cross the finish line onto Deal Island Beach for awesome refreshments, raffles and unique trophies. 

Held in conjunction with Deal Island Chance Volunteer Fire Company's Skipjack Bike Tour. Race day registration available.
