Length of the Lake 2015 – September 5, 2015
Hope you will be able to join us this year. We have changed the date this year after having to cancel last year due to low numbers. We are hoping the new date will work better for more people.
How Hard Can It Be?
Join us on Saturday, September 5, 2015 for this one-of-a-kind Ultra-Paddling race on scenic Okanagan Lake!
The race starts at Kin Beach in Vernon at 7:00 AM (6 AM for early starters) and ends 100 kilometres later on Okanagan Beach in Penticton. In between are four on-shore aid station/check points where paddlers and their support crews will find water, washrooms, and parking.
The race may be long, but the list of rules is short. In a nutshell, crews must arrive at each check point before the designated cut-off times. Crew changes are optional, but may take place only at the check points.
Race registration includes an after-race dinner and a limited-edition water bottle. Race categories with three or more entries by the early registration deadline (midnight Wednesday, August 22, 2015) are considered official and are eligible for prizes. Unofficial, including “build-your-own” categories are welcome and are eligible for bragging rights and a place in the Length of the Lake Ultra-paddle history books.
We hope to see you at Length for a day of racing you’ll never forget!
