A 3.2-mile kayak and paddle board race through the Pine Knoll Shores canals and Bogue Sound begins Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 10 a.m. A $50 registration fee includes a Warrior T-shirt and lunch. We will again have the WARRIORS RACE, a “race within a race.” There will be raw time winners in the “standard” race. 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.

FOR EVERY DOLLAR RAISED BY EACH RACER, 1 SECOND WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THEIR RAW RACE TIME.  There is NO limit to the number of seconds that can be deducted. The WARRIOR winner will be the racer with the fastest WARRIOR time by calculating their (raw time) – (dollars raised/seconds) = WARRIOR time. Sponsor dollars accepted up to race time @ Garner Park or the electronic cut off if submitting online.  additional info.  All sponsor dollars must be submitted 24 hours before the race including the electronic cut off submitting on line.

Loaner kayaks are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. In order to reserve a loaner, the participant must register online and then contact us at :[email protected]


After all kayak and paddle board racers return to shore, an awards ceremony and Hot Dog 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 with a max of $15 per family, and DOES include Linda’s “special Coney Sauce.” K4TW t-shirts will be available for purchase.  A fantastic raffle will take place as well.
