River City SUP Series - BIC One Design Challenge
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
We are pleased to be the ONLY Minnesota venue for the BIC SUP One Design Challenge as part of the River City SUP Series! This worldwide series of citizen stand up paddleboard races continues for a second year in a row in St. Cloud, Minnesota!
This is a an opportunity for novice stand up paddleboarders and spectators to learn about the stand up paddleboarding and participate in some friendly competition. SCSU Outdoor Endeavors will provide all the SUP equipment & safety gear for participants!
About the Event
The River City SUP Race Series targets beginner/novice stand up paddlerboarders to compete in a friendly & supportive atmoshpere. We are entusiastic about including two of these events (6/21/14 & 6/28/14) in the 2014 Minnesota Star of the North Games and sharing the event with those participants.
There are three divisions for participants: Men's Women's & Youth (under 18). SUP racers start along shore, aside their boards, until the horn is sounded. The racers then traverse around buoys over the length of the 300 yard course back to the finish line. Each heat is 6 participants, with places 1-3 competing in sunsequent heats to participate in the finals!
Heats generally last 15-20 minutes and the overall time of the event will depend on the actual number of participants that register.
The event will occur rain or shine, but SCSU Outdoor Endeavors will reserve the right to alter the schedule or cancel the event should there be lightning or thunderstorms on the day of the event.
