Town Lake #4 Kids Race and Potluck
February 18 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
The 4th and final race of the Town Lake race series is Sunday, February 18th.
There will be a short kids race (kid only or adult/youth) starting at 9:30am. The course will be upstream from the boat ramp, turning around at the I35 bridge, then downstream and finishing at the boat ramp.
The first adult class will begin at 10:15am.
There will be a potluck following the race. Bring food, drinks, and a chair. It’s a great time to hang out and get to know the paddling community a bit better.
These races are administrated by John Baltzell, but we will try to answer any questions we can. They are a very fun, free way to start the 2018 training season.
Location: Festival Beach Boat Ramp, Austin, TX
Registration begins at 8:30 am for all races. Please arrive early enough to register before the races. These are free races, but you’ll still have to sign a waiver and get a number. There are handicapped start times determined by boat type and ability. SUP’s are welcome.
The course route changes each week, but in general the races are all about 6-8 miles long.
