Paddle and Prance

“STOP YOUTH HUNGER” paddle and prance

 

 

 

Help the Beaver County YMCA Stop Youth Hunger right here in Beaver County.

 

Race Date: Saturday, August 13

  

Looking for a way to combine both running and stand-up paddle boarding?  We have partnered with BVP Board Shop to bring the community both recreational sports in one fun event.  This is a family friendly event and will NOT be timed.  Children must be 12 years old and be accompanied by a parent during the entire event.  We have two different options for you to choose from.

*Long Course – paddle 1 mile up the Beaver River, run 1 mile then paddle back down the Beaver River

*Short Course-paddle 1/2 mile up the Beaver River and 1/2 mile back to the starting point.  Then 1 mile run.

 

Don’t own a paddle board?  No Problem!  BVR Board Shop has you covered with both a life jacket and a paddleboard (no additional charge).  Life jackets MUST be worn while in the water.

 

Fee: $25

Must register online before August 1st to receive a race shirt.
