For Canoers, the age of the team is based on the oldest person in the canoe. Finish time is based on when both participants have crossed the finish line. All participants should park at the Youth Ranch as you will be shuttled to the launch, otherwise you will be charged $6 by Rays Canoe for parking and you will be responsible for transporting your Canoe/Kayak back to your car.
*Rental Canoes and/or Kayaks will be provided on site and are included with your registration. Personally owned Canoes and Kayaks are also welcome.
* During the water portion, all participants must wear a USCG approved flotation device. If you're providing your own Kayak or Canoe, it must be labeled with your name and phone number.
