Paddle for the Bays: RACE Cape Cod

Saturday, September 16, 2017


Join us at Ropes Beach in Cotuit, MA and join the RACE for clean water! Paddle on one of the most beautiful courses in New England. This RACE is a test of speed and endurance for Stand Up Paddle-boarders and Kayakers on courses of varying difficulty. All ages and levels of paddlers can compete in a spirited challenge on the beautiful waters of Barnstable's Three Bays.

Last year was the first year we added a relay team to the event. The team option is a great way to get friends to join you and raise money for Barnstable Clean Water Coalition.  A team will consist of 4 racers who will use the same kayak/board. Each racer will go the distance of approximately 1/2 mile for a total of 2 miles.

When you register, you will have the choice of how to enter the RACE.   We encourage you to partner with us and fundraise for our clean water rescue mission. When you register as a fundraiser, you will receive a fundraising page that you can customize to your liking. If you raise enough money to match or exceed your registration of $95.00, your fee will be waived. If you don't reach your goal, you'll be charged the difference. Don't worry, you don't have to fundraise, you can just register and pay the fee. Either way, we appreciate your support.

We have some amazing prizes for the top 3 fundraisers!!  For prizes, fundraising totals will be tallied at 9 a.m. the day of the race (Saturday, September 16th), but we encourage everyone to continue to fundraise beyond race day.

The first 100 registrants will receive a long sleeved tee shirt.

Please pre-register, as the cost goes up the day of the RACE. Registration on September 16th will be $110.00 for adults and $55.00 for youth.

Online registration will end at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept 15th, but you can register at the event.

Mandatory Safety Meeting at 8am on the beach for all racers. First race starts at 9am
