Do we have a race in store for you on Saturday, March 11, 2017!
Hurricane Matthew cannot hold us down from bringing Runners and Paddlers a spectacular event at a different, but great, new location. As many are aware, Hunting Island State Park is currently closed and the trails being the last to be reopen after post hurricane repairs. So what’s an Adventurist to do? So glad you asked.
The 2017 SIRC race location will be held in and around the beautiful village of Port Royal. The race will begin at The Sands with kayaks and paddle boards paddling the waterway separating Port Royal and Parris Island Recruit Depot + or – 6 miles. Following the paddle, runners will be entertained by a unique plus or minus 4 mile run complete with challenges. “Entertained, challenges”, you may ask…. “+ or – miles” you may ask? Hey, we got this, just trust us. Want the actual details? Yeah, bet you do. We promise that more details will follow soon, but there will NOT be anything you can’t handle (well, probably not).
As usual, you can participate Solo, Relay (1 paddler and 1 runner), or Team (tandem kayak with both paddling AND running). There will be separate award categories for male, female, mixed, kayak, and paddle boards. We are also looking to increase our awards for age categories this year based on participation. And did I mention the fun Post-Race party with grub and libations?
