THE RUSH KICK OFF

The event kicks off at 7:30AM and racers can begin to check in at 7:45 at the Captains Meeting. This is where final instructions for the race day will be given. The start and gun sounds at 8:30AM for the first group of racers. We ask that you show up early so that you will be prepared in time for your division heat.

RACE DIVISIONS

The St. Johns SUP Rush is broken up into three separate divisions. These divisions consist of Beginner/Intro, Intermediate, and Masters. They are split into three divisions, so that everyone can have an enjoyable and fun time on the water. You may only register for one division for each race date. Below is a description on each of these divisions:

Beginner/Intro Division: 

Start Time: 8:40AM
Description: This Course will be an Out and Back course from the committee boat to an intermediate Mark. The Course will total approximately 3/4 mile out and back for a total of 1.5 miles. This course will stay close to the western shore of the St John's River. Ideal for a first race for all ages. You can use any stand up paddle board you want!
 

Intermediate Division:

Start Time: 8:35AM
Description: A 3.5 mile paddle for those who are already paddlers and want a challenge! This course will go north towards NAS JAX, then head east to the middle of the river where the racers will navigate 3 buoys. Here they will use their board handling skills as well as the endurance of the racers, before heading west to finish at the Rudder Club Dock. You can use any SUP board shape or size!
 

Masters Division:

Start Time: 8:30AM
Description: This race is for the more elite paddler as it covers a total of 7 miles. There are two classes, which are the 12'6" class and the 14' class (displacement hulls shapes only). Check out the map as there are some turns involved. It is the same course as the intermediate course except you make 2 laps, instead of just one.
