The MHO Atlanta SUP & Kayak Challenge 2015

**** This event has been cancelled.  ****

Hey SUP Racers!

We are one week out from the ATL SUP & Kayak Challenge Race and have very low registration numbers. After speaking with so many in the SUP community, we understand that this time of the year has us all being pulled in many family and personal directions. Though we usually see registration pick up two weeks out from the race, the numbers are too low this year to move forward. It is with regret that we are going to cancel this event and reschedule for early spring. The registered racers will receive a refund.

It is always our priority to bring you a quality event that is safe and fun. Low numbers over a 3, 6, & 9 mile race w/ various craft categories, really wasn’t going to provide an energetic race. It didn’t seem fair to condense everyone into one race distance, since I knew we have a handful of racers that are Chattajack training and wanted the 9-mile event for training.
After several days of crunching numbers, discussing options with our peers and watching the weather, we felt this was the best decision for everyone.

We will honor our sponsors with calling them for refund options, but plan to maintain all sponsors in the account to use this spring. We were also fortunate that all of prepaid expenses were able to transfer to a future date. We hope that you all are getting the information in adequate time to cancel any travel plans you may have made.

Once again, we are truly sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment. We look forward to see you again Spring 2016. (Date TBA, pending April 2st, 2016)

Thank you,
Kayla & Emily
