Jr. Texas Water Safari and TCKRA Tandem Unlimited Championship
September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
|Jr. Texas Water Safari
16 miles from San Marcos City Park to Staples. The Jr. TWS is a shorter version of the Texas Water Safari with same age requirements as the Texas Water Safari. Entry fee $25 per paddler (race day registration only). Food and drinks will be provided at the finish line. Registration begins at 8 a.m. at San Marcos City Park. Cut-off deadline for reaching Hwy 1979 Martindale Bridge is 12 noon.
Compared to the Texas Water Safari, this is a sprint race, pure and simple. Because it occurs in September of each year, this race does not present a true scouting opportunity for next year’s TWS racers, as the river will have likely changed significantly by the following June. However, while this is considered a fun race by all, many racers take it very seriously, using it as one of the many training runs they will undertake prior to the start of the big race in June.
This race is also the TCKRA’s tandem unlimited championship–so dust off your fastest tandem to see who can claim this years’ title.
Join us for the party afterward where racers, from the most laid back to the most hard-core, have an opportunity to rub elbows with each other and to tell stories about their experiences in the Safari. Who knows? Maybe some of the stories are true!
