Map of the Race and Eco-Tour Routes

The race course is 3.5 miles and we will crown 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in the following groups:

-Men's Solo Kayak
-Women's Solo Kayak
-Junior Solo Kayak (Age 13 and under)
-Tandem Craft (2 paddlers in either a canoe or kayak)
-Stand Up Paddle Board
-Non-Traditional (Any type of non-motorized boats not in the other divisions, including solo canoes and pedal kayaks, excluding sailboats)
-Pro Solo Kayak (A 7.0 mile race made up of two loops of the course, any age and  gender)

Eco-tour: If you're not interested in racing, but would like to be on the water, there will be a non-competitive Eco-tour paddle of the Weeks Bay area. 

Loaner Gear: If you would like to participate in the race or the Eco-tour but do not have your own paddling gear (PFD, Paddle, Kayak or Canoe) we may be able to help. The Fairhope Boat Company and 17 Turtles OUtfitters have generously donated a limited number of canoes and kayaks, with paddles and PFDs, for the day of the race. They are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in borrowing gear, please call the Weeks Bay Foundation at 251-990-5004 to reserve your boat. Please do this BEFORE you register to ensure that we still have boats available. 

PFDs (Lifejackets) are mandatory for all paddlers in both the race divisions and the Eco-Tour. 

Waiver: All participants will be required to sign a waiver at check-in.
