​March 11, 2017 - Hunting Island Adventure Biathlon - Awesome race that has grown tremendously. Held at Hunting Island State Park Jack and the Sea Island Rotary Club do a great job in organizing this event. There were over X00 participants this past year. Compete in both events or choose the paddle or run leg and partner up with a friend. Tons of SWAG and great awards. Lots of fun! ​ Learn More .

April 29, 2017 - French Broad River Classique - This is a full weekend of racing. One event each day of this weekend. Unfortunately it overlaps with the Jacksonville River City Challenge this year, but we'll try to avoid conflicts in the future. The RD's are great ambassadors to the sport and the location in Western NC provides a unique experience. River races both days with some mild/moderate rapids on the second day. I hear that you get to paddle through the Vanderbilt Estate on the 2nd day! ​ Learn More
