The Bridge II Sports Parkayak Racing Club invites paddlers of all abilities to join them for an exciting morning of races at Lake Crabtree County Park in Morrisville, NC. The venue has been the site of two US Canoe and Kayak Marathon Team selections and is home to the most accessible dock in the country (through the hard work of Bridge II Sports and community and corporate partners!). Competitors will not be distracted by powerboats while spectators can view the entire course from the Start/Finish area.
There will be 3 mile and 10 mile distances for Olympic Kayak, US Canoe Association Unlimited Kayak, Seakayak, and Canoe. Stand-Up Paddle Boards are welcome to race as well! The Three Mile will feature a Paracanoe Class for single Kayak and VA’A. Awards will be given to the first three men and women in each distance and Class. Food and drink will be available for all participants before and after the races in addition to cool race gear guaranteed to pre-registered participants.
Coming this May- the BIIS Parakayak Racing Club will be hosting weekly clinics for athletes new to kayak racing and those that already love to race to train. Stay tuned for details!
