The Bridge II Sports ParaKayak Racing Club hosted paddlers of all abilities, including Veterans and paddlers with disabilities, for Paddle! Lake Crabtree– an exciting morning of laid back racing and fun at Lake Crabtree County Park in Morrisville, NC on September 23rd.
Participants took part in a 3 mile challenge or 10 mile marathon race using sea kayaks, K1s, tandems and stand-up paddleboards. Lake Crabtree has been the venue for two US Canoe and Kayak Marathon Team selections and is home to the most accessible dock in the country (through 5 years of hard work and determination of Bridge II Sports and community and corporate partners!). The lake is a favorite of paddlers with its smooth water and lack of powerboats.
After a successful morning on the water everyone enjoyed lunch, awards and a raffle with incredible prizes from Great Outdoor Provision Co. and Epic Kayaks and Paddles. All proceeds from the event go to support the mission of Bridge II Sports and the ParaKayak Racing Club dedicated to get everyBODY on the water.
