2.9 Mile Short Course - Water start in front of Key West Eco Tour Paddle Hut. Paddlers will head down the channel and loop around Saddle Hill Key and head back into the Geiger Marina for a water finish. (Wind direction will determine which way you will loop Saddle Hill Key) Great Views of the mangroves and open ocean the whole course!

5.5 Mile Long Course- Water start in front of Key West Eco Tour Paddle Hut. Paddlers will head West down along Geiger Key, then turn right into Geiger Creek and paddle a mile under bridges, through amazing mangrove trails and tunnels. Then across a shallow water, hard bottom basin and back into the mangroves! As you come out of the mangroves, you're on the home stretch heading back across some open water and back into the channel for the finish line!  An Extremely scenic course! (This course may change depending on wind speed & direction)

Both Sprint Races - Race from buoy to buoy down the channel in front of the Geiger Key Marina Restaurant
