Casselberry, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014
The race will feature a 2.3 K Run, 3K Paddle and end with another 2.3 K Run. We structured this race so it would be fun for many fitness levels.
RunYak will be held at Secret Lake Park, nestled in the heart of Casselberry. This amazing park features ball fields, a community center, paved running trail and one of the most peaceful non-motorized blueways in central Florida.
Participants should bring their own kayak or paddleboard along with a Personal Flotation Device (life jacket) and paddle. Rentals are available but must be reserved at time of online registration.
New Canoe Relay Team Division!
One team member runs first leg then both paddle the canoe and the other team member runs the final leg. This division is available for canoes only. Should we have 6 or more teams sign up paddling tandem kayaks, we will open a kayak division as well.
Individual divisions: Kayak & Paddleboard.
Limited quantities of kayaks, PFDs & paddles are available for rental but only at the time you register online. We prefer that participants in the Canoe Relay division rent a canoe during registration. There are plenty of Canoes available for rental and this will ensure everyone is paddling the same Canoe.
Over $400 in Prizes & Swag
Great prizes will be awarded to top finishers and everyone will be eligible for raffle prizes from TravelCountry.
