About This Activity

The concept is simple:

- One mass start of all types of paddle craft.
- Different categories based on vessel.
- Different distances based on ability.

The details are as follows:

STEP 1.
Line up cross river for the starting gun.
STEP 2.
Paddle your chosen vessel to the distance you feel you can achieve.  The different distances are shown on the specific race maps below.  Each turning point will be demarkated by flags or ribbons attached to buoys that will be ancored in the river at distances of 5K, 10K, Half-marathon, and Marathon as a function of round trip distances.  Paddle as far as you can (or to your predeterimed distance), upriver, and realize that once you grab your flag, you still have to paddle back to the start location.
STEP 3.
Use your safety pins to pin the rip-off section of your race number SECURELY to your ribbon once it is obtained.  If these become separated, you will be disqualified.  So it's important.
STEP 4.
When you return to the starting location (Riverside Adventure Company shoreline), you must pull your boat out of the water at least 30' from shore, and then deliver your ribbon and attached bib strip to the proper tally board.  The boards will be layed-out pre-race, so you can know exactly were you need to go, before you begin the race.
STEP 5.
CONGRATULATIONS! You did it!  No catch your breath, listen to some music, get some food and wait for the awards ceremony!
