Chicago SUP Lagoonapalooza 2017

Join us for a full day of racing and fun on the spectator friendly Lincoln Park Lagoon with the backdrop of the Chicago Skyline.

Schedule includes a 6 Mile, 3 Mile and a 1 Mile Fun race,  a SUP Yoga Class and a Paddlefit Class and a raffle presented by Lincoln Park Boat Club, Whaleback Paddleboards and ChicagoSUP.

ISA SUP Surfing world champion, Zane Schweitzer will be teaching SUP clinics all afternoon! Do not miss the opportunity to learn from a true waterman.

Bring the whole family and let everyone experience what SUP in the Windy City is all about.

Board Rentals

Boards will be provided for the Yoga and Paddlefit classes only

6 Mile, 3 Mile and 1 Mile Fun racers will have to provide their own board, paddle, leash and pfd.

A limited number of boards can be rented from ChicagoSUP. Boards will only be available to you during the race for which you registered and will have to be returned immediately after race finish. Reserve your board during the registration process on this site.


In order to promote paddling safety, a pfd and leash are mandatory. 

Participants will have to follow all instructions of the race organizers. Recreational paddling on the race course during races will not be permitted. 

Discount & Hats

Pre-registered racers save $10 over race day registration.

In order to keep the entry fees low, we have decided to offer Hats for sale instead of T-shirts. They can be purchased during registration or on site. 


Top 3 from each category male and female will receive race medals.

Trophies and Prizes will be given to 1st place all categories for 3 and 6 Mile races.

Parking is available in the Zoo Parking lot adjacent to the Boat Club. The first 30 minutes of parking are free, after that a daily fee ($40) applies. To look for cheaper options in the area we recommend using Spothero. If you arrive early, you may also be able to find free street parking.
