At the Main Beach
There will be park personnel on-site to assist participants in bringing their boards and kayaks to the transition area. We strongly encourage kayakers to wear PFD’s during the kayak portion of the race. There will be maps of the race routes in all participant bags. These maps are also located on www.SprintandSplash.com. Please review these maps prior to the race. The 2-Mile Kayak and 2-Mile SUP Route are the same. Large orange triangle buoys mark a turning point on the route and red circle buoys are inline markers. MY QUESTION ISN'T LISTED. If you have a question, more than likely someone else has the same one. Please contact – Amanda.Minaudo@macombgov.org
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 6 MILE RACE?
Due to the limited field size, we have decided to eliminate the 6 Mile SUP Race from the event lineup. We will reconsider for 2022.
