In addition, the top 100 shrimp have a chance to win a new car or boat if their shrimp number correctly matches the randomly selected “Lucky Number” by Odds On Promotion, a third party insurance company, prior to the start of the race.

Adopted shrimp numbers will be randomly assigned by race officials at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the race and will be immediately posted at the site of the race along with the adopters name.

Race results will be announced at the conclusion of the race at Waterfront Park, and then later on this website.  You do not need to be present to win.  If you are a winner you will be contacted by a member of the Sea Island Rotary Club to claim your prize.
