PaddlePoloozza 2018

September 8, 2018
Thomas P. Morahan Park, Greenwood Lake, NY

It’s back!!!! After a great time in 2017, we are doing it again.

This is a great race for all levels from beginner to elite! If you ever wanted to try racing or just try something new, this is the event for you… and we promise… the t-shirt will be cool.

Try our 1 mile fun race or challenge yourself and try the 3, 6 or 12 mile course. Our 12 mile elite course will travel from NY to NJ and back to NY.

A fun relay race for all will follow after our 12 milers come in.

The after party will be just across the water at the home marina to Jersey Paddle Boards, where food and a soft drink  will be provided with race entry. Water will be available to everyone at no cost. Additional food/drink bracelets can be purchased on PaddleGuru or on the day of the event for non-racers. Alcoholic beverages are BYOB or, AFTER the race, can be purchased next door at Tortuga and be brought back over.

***The day of the race is also my husband’s (Al) birthday, so a big celebration will follow.***

All proceeds will be donated to The GWL Skatepark Project & GWL Teen Center.

Parking is limited at both locations, so we will have attendants on site with instructions for this.
