COURSE REVEAL: June 11 (Paddle Sprints 1)

CHESTERFIELD, MO — Alpine Shop has announced the course for the first ever Paddle Sprint presented by Huga Bar. The race will be held at the new River’s Edge Park in Chesterfield, Missouri. Spots still remain for this inaugural event – register for single races on-line ($17 each) or on-site from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM ($20).

The put-in will be directly to the west of the Dock and Shelter. Alpine Shop will provide demo kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) to all registered paddlers, or you are welcome to bring your own. Paddlers will be able to warm-up in the western part of River’s Edge Lake, as well as receive last-minute tips from Alpine Shop’s ACA-certified kayak and SUP instructors. Start times are available beginning at 6:15 PM – simply paddle over to the timing tent on the dock, enter your number and boat type with the timing staff, line your boat up with the Start/Finish buoy, and start paddling! The course is approximately 0.8 miles long and a simple out-and-back around a buoy at the eastern end of River’s Edge Lake – perfect for beginners! Paddlers are allowed to make as many runs as time allows, in as many different boat types as you want. Results will be separated by age and boat type. All paddlers must wear a PFD while on the water.

Don’t forget! Registration includes free bars from Chesterfield-based Huga Bar, as well as a chance to win a pair of sandals from Olukai.

River’s Edge Park also features a hiking trail with elevated boardwalk, as well as close proximity to the Monarch Levee biking path. Even if someone in your family isn’t a paddler, bring them along to enjoy the outdoors at the brand new River’s Edge Park!
