•TIME TRIAL Format: Time Trial Races are a race against the clock & for your best time on a consistent course over a consistent distance (choose from 1 or 2 mile course) - allowing paddlers to establish a baseline on Race 1 & see progression from week to week! Distances are kept short for all out effort. Paddlers will start individually in equal 30 second intervals in order of check in. TTs are also referred to as "the race of truth", as winning depends only on each paddler's strength and endurance, and not on help provided by drafting as no drafting is allowed. Use these races to improve your personal record & test out effectiveness of different gear.
• Kids Course = .25mi out & back course for paddlers 13 years old & younger. Must be accompanied by an adult, know how to swim & wear a pfd. Kids Race is completed first so parents may participate in the other courses.
