DUE TO COVID 19 THE RUNYAK HAS BEEN CANCELED FOR 2020
Paddle N Run has been canceled for 2020. There was a conflict with launching boats within Riverbends and we were trying to come up with another location to host the event. However, we feel there is not enough time to to plan for a quality event. We will have both the Runyak and Paddle N Run in 2021!
Have fun at one and try them both! RunYak Sunday July 19, 2020 and Paddle N Run Sunday August 23, 2020. Each Race will offer an event shirt and finisher award as well as overall awards. Series participants will receive an extra swag item. There will be post race food and fun! Participants can enter solo or tandem divisions for one or both events. Don't have a kayak or SUP (for Runyak)? No worries, rental is available during check out. More info at www.erc-events.com/runyak--paddle-n-run
