The race format starts at the Eagle’s Crest and consists of a 1.25-mile trail run to boats, 1.25-mile paddle to the Eagle Creek Park beach, 5K trail run, 1.25-mile paddle back to the westside, and 1.25-mile trail run back to the Crest.
“In an effort to protect the park, we’re keeping the course as natural as possible,” Davis said. Without the threat of extreme obstacles, he said, “we just leave the battle against nature up to you.”
Competitors have the choice to enter as an individual or team in three divisions: kayak (one or two person), canoe (two or three person), or single/double sculling rowboat (one or two person). Racers will need to bring their own kayak, canoe, or rowboat. Life jackets are required.
