Above is the basic course design for the Beyond the Paddle event. Everyone will start on the beach of the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center. 

4- and 2-Mile Race (blue line) will start from the beach with boards and paddles in hand, paddle out to circle a set of buoys, and return to the beach on each lap. Upon touching the beach, racers will leave their boards by the waterline and continue on foot around a set of flags with paddle still in hand, then returning back to their board and hitting the water again for another lap. (Total of 3 laps)

Paddle Flotilla individuals and teams (pink line) will start 5 minutes behind the racers, allowing for an easy entrance into the water, with no reason to rush. Once everyone is in the water, we will start to paddle. This is an easy, leisurely paddle along the shoreline. Everyone is welcome to take their time and enjoy the scenery. (One lap. Keep paddling if you please.)

Beach Walkers (red line) will start their strut down the beach simultaneously to the flotilla take-off. Walkers are welcome to stroll at their own pace and enjoy the scenery, while cheering on their fellow paddling participants.

8-Mile Race - TBD (most likely announced on the morning of the race, determined by skill level of paddlers who show, and majority vote of racers)
