Race Description

May 4th, 2013. First competitive wave leaves at 8:00 AM If you will be bringing your own Kayak, please arrive at least 1 hour before your wave time so you have enough time to stage your Kayak in the transition area, which is 1/2 mile from the start! This event will be similar to a Triathlon, but instead of the swimming leg, you will kayak. The first wave that starts at 8:00 and the second wave at 8:30 are the competitive waves. There will be a kayaks available if you do not have your own. The number of participants in each wave will be determined on how many of those participants bring their own kayaks. There will not be separate trophies for the competitive wave and the regular waves. 10 year age groups and overall male The length of the bike leg will be between 6 to 8 miles. There will be very little sand, but mostly grass and pine needles. There will not be anything extreme on the bike section. The course is Florida flat! It will be fun and will be a great workout. You must furnish your own bike. Bikes with wider tires will do better than skinny tires. You may be required to lift your bike over a fence or two. You will return your bike to the Transition area and start your run. The run will be 3 miles of woods, some pasture and some mild obstacles (no large Highlander obstacles). These obstacles will not be extreme nor will you need help to get through them. This race is not intended to be an obstacle mud race like the Highlander or Hot Pursuit. All Teams must do the course together and cross the finish line together in order to qualify for Awards. This is our second Yakathon and we hope you come on out and give it a try. There is no separate kid’s race at this event, but there will be things for them to play on in the vendor’s section. We will have some awesome food and drinks as well as our energetic DJ cranking some tunes! Bring the family and make it a fun fitness day!
