The River Dash Kayathlon

 

A Kayathlon is a multisport event that involves kayaking/canoing/paddle boarding, cycling and running.

The kayathlon is ran much like a triathlon, you just paddle a kayak, canoe or paddle board instead of swimming during  the water portion of the race.  This year at the River Dash Kayathlon we will have one distances that racers can choose to run three different ways.  They can run solo, run the whole race together as a two person team, or as a three person relay team where one person runs, one pedals and one paddles.  During the kayaking portion, teams of two must either compete in a tandem kayak or a canoe.

The age limit is 12 years old and up, until racers are 18 they must have a waver signed by their parents or legal guardians to compete.
