Location: The Race begins at Russ Point Landing next to the Park Nature Center and the Fripp Island Bridge
Course: Racers paddle kayaks or stand-up paddle boards (SUP) up into Fripp Inlet, circle around a buoy and then back to the landing. From there the racers transition into the run portion, running toward the Nature Center and the park trails that await. Athletes can complete the course in Teams, where one paddles and the other runs – which we call a Relay Team. Athletes also have the option to race as a team in a tandem kayak and then run the course together (they must finish together) We call this a Tandem Team.
Start Time: 11:00AM remember to come early enough to off load kayak and park.
* Chip Timing will be used which allows us to provide split times for paddle and run, as well as compute results accurately and fast.
** Racers will be accessed and responsible for a $30.00 lost chip fee.
