Crawdad's on the River at Riverbank Marina
1375 Garden Hwy, Sacramento, California See Map
from 9am - 2pm
Overview: Riverbank Marina, Crawdads On The River and FLOW Stand Up Paddle have teamed up again to bring Sacramento the fourth annual Paddle 4 DART fundraising event. This exciting fundraiser will be centered on two stand up paddleboard events – a solo race course and a team relay event.
Beneficiary: All event proceeds will benefit Drowning Accident Rescue Team (D.A.R.T.)– an all-volunteer organization that helps with water safety and education in the Sacramento area. This dedicated group of volunteers is on call 24/7 for emergency water rescues and recoveries. We are proud to be supporting this organization.
Race #1 - 9:00 AM
Kicking off the event is a Solo Race Course that will start and end in front of Crawdads. The 4-mile racers will go first, followed shortly thereafter by our beginner participants. Beginners will paddle the 1-mile loop a single time, while the 4-milers will paddle it 4 times for a total distance of approximately 4 miles. The course will head downriver with the current and the make a loop back up through the marina where the water is very flat and easy to paddle. Paddlers will then leave the marina, make a turn out of it and again head down river with the current. This is one lap. Each lap passes in front of Crawdads Restaurant where spectators and friends will be cheering you on!
9 AM start time
The Relay Event is a fun and entertaining event for all! The course will be located right in front of Crawdads providing an awesome view for spectators to cheer on their favorite teams. Participants will start at the accommodation dock, make a rectangle around 4 buoys, then paddle back to the dock to switch to the next team member. Each team member will paddle the course once for a total of 4 laps.
$140 per team
Costumes encouraged! We will be awarding Crawdads on the River gift cards to the most festive and creative. Dress for fun, but remember to keep it safe. D.A.R.T will be on hand with their full crew providing safety and support. There could not be a better safety crew to support a race and we are very thankful to them for making this all possible!!
Complimentary lunch, race t-shirts, and raffle ticket will be provided to all participants.
Raffle will be held at the end of the event.
