The 8-mile race and 3-mile fun paddle feature a
beach start and finish at Victory Park. The paddle
routes and turnaround points will be clearly marked by buoys.
Safety boats will be positioned along the paddle routes, and will have water on board for paddlers in need. However, we recommend paddlers bring their own hydration and nutrition for consumption while paddling.
Victory Park is located at Lafayette St. & W. River Rd., Rumson, NJ
You will not be able to enter Lafayette Street from River Road. Please take Washington Street (Wells Fargo Bank is on the corner) and make a left onto Hunt Street and then a left onto Lafayette.
Drop off your boards at this designated park entrance location. Volunteers will be there to unload your board and place it near/on the beach while you park your car elsewhere. We ask that you do not park your car and carry your board through the streets.
