Description

Come on out to Wahines of the Waves (WOW)'s fourth annual Briefcase Push Race! WOW is UF's all-women's surf, skate, and wakeboard club. We are holding this event as a fundraiser for Skateistan: an international non-profit empowering youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa (for more info see skateistan.org).

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND IS BEGINNER-FRIENDLY. Anyone can compete as long as they have a helmet (**REQUIRED**) and are registered to ride. Spectators are welcome as well.

The event will consist of:
- 2-mile race on mainly flat land (very beginner friendly)
- 10k race that includes small hills and turns (top speed ~25mph)
- Flatground freestyle/dance competition (a few small ramps/features added)
- Miniramp contest
- Miscellaneous mini-contests for prizes (freestyle rap battle included)
- Raffles for an assortment of sponsor product
- Afterparty

There will be prizes for top 3 winners in Open, Women's and Groms divisions. FIRST PLACE IN EACH DIVISION FOR EVERY EVENT WINS A BRIEFCASE FULL OF PRIZES!!!

Sign-in begins at 11:00 A.M. and push off for the first race is at noon sharp. Registration day of the event instead of online will cost an additional $5. Mini-ramp and freestyle contests are free for registered riders, otherwise it's a $5 registration fee. Don’t forget to bring cash for the raffles; we will be giving out a ton of prizes and all the money from entry fees and raffles goes straight to charity!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! All ages are welcome to spectate and compete at the event. However, if you are under 18 years of age, you must have a legal guardian sign your liability waiver.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There are several parking lots available, however the one at the event usually gets filled up quickly. We suggest parking on the lot at the regular Boulware Springs entrance for close parking, or at the La Chua trailhead and then skating about a quarter mile to the right (North) to get to the event site.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to send a message on Facebook to Wahines of the Waves, or email neena.schueller@gmail.com.

What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds on event registrations, however all the registration money goes to charity so if you end up not being able to attend, at least you still helped someone out. :)

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope, we will have a list of all registered participants and we will sign you in at rider check-in before the races start.
