Length of the Lake Ultra Paddle

How hard could it be?
Length of the lake 2013

Join us on Saturday, September 21, 2013 for this one-of-a-kind Ultra-Paddling race on scenic Okanagan Lake!  Note: due to a significant loss last year we have set a minimum number in order to hold the race this year and will make the determination at the beginning of September.  That being said we are hopeful and confident that we will have enough paddlers to break even this year.  This race is a labour of love and all we want is to break even!

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 micro-fibre towels. Race categories with three or more entries by the early registration deadline (midnight on August 31, 2013) 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!

Please submit your Intent to Race by midnight on August 31, 2013.
