This is a great race for all levels from beginner to elite so if you ever wanted to try racing or just join something new, this is the event for you. ......and we promise....the t-shirt will be cool. Try our 1 mile fun race or challenge yourself and try the 3 or 6 mile course. Our 12 mile elite course will travel from NY to NJ and back to NY... A relay race will follow after our 12 milers come in.
The after party will then begin just across the water at the home marina to Jersey Paddle Boards, where food and a soft drink (water will be available to everyone at no cost) will be provided with race entry. Additional bracelets can be purchased either here on PaddleGuru or on the day of the event for non-racers. Alcoholic beverages are BYOB or, AFTER the race, can be purchased next door at Breezy Point Inn and be brought back over.
***The day of the race is also my husband's (Al) birthday so a big celebration will follow. If anyone would like to wear nude color clothing to look like a birthday suit or dress up in any way we do encourage this****
All proceeds will be donated to
The GWL skatepark project & GWL teen center
