2017 LBTBP Pick Your Poison Five-Miler

Join us for an evening bay race with your choice of craft on a spectator-friendly four-loop course. There will be wave starts by category and awards presented after the race. Race categories include doubles row, standup paddle, prone paddle (including knee paddling), surf ski/kayak/outrigger, quadrathlon (1.25 miles each of singles row, SUP, prone paddle, and either surf ski, kayak, or outrigger; you can do the 4 legs in any order so you can share equipment with someone else), and quadrathlon relay (two people split up the 4 legs of the quadrathlon).

There may be a limited amount of equipment available to borrow (mostly standup boards and a few Van Duynes), with preference given to people doing the quadrathlon. Contact long.beach.twp.beach.patrol@gmail.com to inquire about availability.

Pre-registration for the discounted price of $25 closes on or about August 3. Race-day registration is available for $35. Only pre-registered entrants are guaranteed a T-shirt.

Course maps:

The event will be held at Bayview Park, Brant Beach, NJ, 08008 (which should work as an address in your GPS; if it doesn't, 6805 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach, NJ, 08008 will get you to the municipal building across the street from the park).

Please allow time to check in and get your equipment down to the start line, which will be on the north beach at Bayview Park (this is the beach to your right as you pull into the parking lot). 

You can bring equipment at any time during the day, so if you want to drop off boats in the morning to save time in the evening that is allowed.

Please pull trucks and trailers into the parking lot after dropping off your gear so there is enough room for us to run the event.
