Course

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.

Get Timed, Win Prizes

Timing: Each participant will be officially timed, with results posted on this event page to track your personal progression and earn bragging rights! You can also view your past and current results any time at www.webscorer.com/waveofwellness.

Training Only: No series points, so switch up your paddle craft and experiment with various gear as much as you like.

Prizes: Grand Prize Giveaway - Each time you complete a race, your name goes into a drawing for the Maui Jim Grand Prize Pack including a Maui Jim Sunglasses Gift Card, at our series finale. Thus, the more times you enter and finish a race, the better your odds are at winning.
