Ready for a 13 mile Race? Register for the Round the Rock Stand Up Paddle Race in Mercer Island, Washington

Got a note from Mike Mudd telling us about this new stand up paddle board distance race circumnavigating Mercer Island on Lake Washington. Their are two courses offered, a 13 mile full course or a 2 1/2 mile short course.

This race sounds like a lot of fun. Remember to get your gear or any last minute accessories from us at Stand Up Paddle Flatwater, we appreciate your business and support.

WHEN: September 27, 2009
Registration: 8 a.m., Race Time: 9 a.m.
WHERE: Mercer Island, Washington
WHAT: Stand up paddleboard distance race of either 13 miles or 2 1/2 miles
We got this note from the race founder and organizer, Jeff Underwood telling us more about how the first annual race is shaping up:


As a SUP-addict, I check out your site frequently. I'm organizing a SUP event for the end of September on Mercer Island, WA. I'm wondering if you can give a plug or provide a link to our site on your blog?

I hatched this event with the idea that it would be a small fun 13 mile paddle around the island, and the mansions that line its shores. Seemingly overnight, it has ballooned to be a big event, with corporate sponsors jockeying for position! Our site only went live on Wednesday and we already have competitors pre-registered from SoCal and Florida!

Anyway, all proceeds are to benefit Surfrider Foundation, and it should be a terrific event.

There's a shorter race of 2.5 miles for those who may be intimidated by the 13 miler.

Please feel free to forward this info. anyone who may be interested.

Paddle on,

Jeff Underwood,
'Round the Rock Stand Up Paddle Race
