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.

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.

Info on board rental to follow. 


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 & T-shirts

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

In order to keep the entry fees low, we have decided to offer T-shirts for sale instead of including them in the race fee. T-shirts 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.
