Race Description

Ready to Yak in 2021!!    

The Yak 'n Run is a fun, outdoor event for kayakers and runners of all skill levels.    You can participate as an individual, or as a team member, where one person kayaks and then "hands off" to the other team member to run the Lake Trail. 

The kayak course is about a .7 mile out and back loop, ending at the boat ramp.    Then we'll help pull the kayaks to the side, and the runner will head off into the woods on the Lake Trail, about 2.25 miles of moderately technical trail.  That means there are roots, logs, spiders, undergrowth, and some dry creek crossings.  (at least they've always been dry so far!) Check out the video for pictures of the course.
