Racers will be body marked instead of race numbers. We
will have body marking at pack pickup the morning of the race. Race numbers need to be at least 3” on the
right side of your body. We will need to mark your body below your race shirt
or shorts. It’s imperative that the timers see your race number when you
Racers will be allowed in the water to warm up by 8:15am.,
immediately following national anthem.
Racers will launch on and off boards from the dock. You will paddle up river
(away from bridge columns) to await your air horn start behind the start line. We
will have 5-6 volunteers along the dock to help you safely come off the water. The
volunteers can carry your board to the staging area if you need help.
Point Cautions: The concrete dock at the start/finish
can be pretty hard on our boards. Due to the fact we have a current at the
dock/finish line; all racers will exit the water at the end of their race.
Lunch from Crave will be served around 11 am under the Team Magic tent. Box lunches were pre-ordered when you registered. Additional box lunches cannot be ordered after Thursday, July 24th. At this point, we do not have any other outside vendors coming with food, but there are dozens of places to feast in the downtown area.

Rooms must be booked by June 25, 2014 to get the Music City Sup Race rate.Hotel Preston, 733 Briley Parkway, for $109.
The hotel has free parking.
All racers will stage their boards in the grassy tiered lawn area. Look for signage. Racers are
encouraged to bring SUP bags or other protection to go under your SUP when not racing.
Timing will be provided by Team Magic, Inc.
There are two ideal spots to view the race: Along the riverfront area or from the top of the Pedestrian Bridge.
Pets are allowed on leash (not to exceed 6’).
Portolets will be available on race site.
Should we experience rain during the race…prepare to get wet! If we have wide spread storms, we will not go on the water until storms have safely passed and we are cleared from the Coast Guard. I suggest we all do the happy, sunshine dance.
DOOR PRIZES & RAFFLE:
Each race packet will have one ticket; hold on to that ticket for door prizes. The grand prize of the race will be given a free race entry to another 2014 MHO SUP Race. Riviera has donated a paddleboard, come see who the lucky recipient will be this year! I would like to say welcome back to Rich, our Wounded Warrior and 2013 Riviera recipient.
