Registration is now open for the third (not-quite-annual) Music City SUP Race. This race welcomes paddleboarders, kayakers and prone paddlers to race in the heart of downtown Nashville. We welcome pros and first-time racers alike.
The event launches from the East Bank of the Cumberland River, with vendors helping us kick off 2-mile and 6-mile races. Afterwards there’s an award ceremony upstairs in the Cumberland River Compact River Center and an after party to follow at a downtown restaurant and bar.
Registration fees are $40 and $50 respectively for the 2-mile and 6-mile races. After July 4, 2016, fees for all categories increase by $10 each. Proceeds from the race benefit the Cumberland River Compact, which works to protect our watershed.
Nashville Paddle Co. will be launching a Thursday Night Race League this summer, which is a great way to get to know other racers and train for this race. If you’ve been thinking about racing, this is a great opportunity.
If you are coming from out of town, the Hotel Preston has some rooms set aside for us. Please remember to thank our sponsors, including HG Hill Realty Co. and Mountain High Outfitters, for making this event possible.
