Kayak for the Warriors Kayak / Paddleboard Race

Garner Park, Oakleaf Drive, Pine Knoll Shores, NC, United States | (252) 247-4353

June 1, 2019 | 10:00 am-1:00 pm

A 3.2-mile kayak and paddle board race through the Pine Knoll Shores canals begins Saturday, June 1, at 10 a.m. A $50 registration fee for a single kayak/paddle board and $100 for a tandem kayak includes a Warrior T-shirt and lunch for each paddler. The WARRIORS RACE will be based on the registrant who brings in the most donations in his or her name. We are asking each participant to create their own team of sponsors. Each racer is encouraged to raise at least $100 in additional donations from their sponsors. Sponsor dollars must be submitted 24 hours before the race including the electronic cut off if submitting online. There will be award categories for kayakers, tandem and paddle boarders. Register on line at www.k4tw.org.


After all racers return to shore, an awards ceremony and Barbecue Feast will begin at 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Garner Park. For those not racing in any other events, the cost to participate in the lunch is $10 per person or $15 per family. Our raffle will take place during the race, and kayak t-shirts will be available for sale. Residents are encouraged to display the American flag. Although most of the action takes place at Garner Park, there are many great viewing areas along the route including McNeill Park, Brock Basin and Ramsey Park.
