We welcome folks to race at their own pace and enjoy 5 miles on the most beautiful stretch of the Broad River. Remember, the hare may not outrun the tortoise!
This race only has two rules:
– You MUST wear a pfd.
– No motors allowed
Otherwise, you can paddle solo, tandem, or with as many people as will fit in your boat. We will meet at the Lake Houser put-in at 1:45 sharp to drop off boats. From there, we will take vehicles to the Broad River Greenway and get a shuttle back to the put in. (If you don’t have a Greenway sticker, you may have a $5 parking fee). Betsy the Turtle drops and the race begins at 3:00pm. And we’re off to paddle or just float at your own pace. First person, or first team, across the finish line wins a MountainTrue gift bag and takes possession of the Turtle until next year’s race.
