MAC Race #1: City Park to Spencers
March 20, 2016 @ 9:00 am$5
Hosted by the Martindale Athletic Club, the first race of the series will start at City Park in San Marcos and finish at Spencers in Martindale (approx 10.5 miles).
Entry fee will be $5 per person, and all types of craft will be encouraged to attend, from 6 man to aluminum to plastic sit on tops.
Races will start at 9am, except for the night race from palmetto to gonzo.
For those who can’t decide what boat to bring, we will have a ‘featured’ class which will change for each race. For the first race, from San Marcos to Martindale on 3/20, that class will be k1/solo unlimited.
There will be a small amount of money and other prizes available for that class only. The minimum prize pool for race one is currently $200. We have finalized the payout yet, but it would be something along the lines of prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall with special recognition cash for first female, first female masters, and first male masters.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show up if you’re not a solo or k1 paddler. We are hoping for a great turnout in all classes across the board – the real intention for these races is to get people out and paddling together, whether you’re a novice or curmudgeonly old veteran. If you are new to the paddling scene, or training for the TWS, these events are a great chance to see the river and meet some of your fellow paddlers.
Also, if anyone is interested in volunteering, please let the MAC know.
