Participants enjoy a challenging 12-mile course over crystal blue waters, circling Key West through scenic mangroves, passing by the Historic Seaport district and more. The race around Key West is set for Saturday, May 11, and is open to paddlers on standup paddleboards, prone boards, outrigger canoes, dory boats, surf skis and kayaks.

The race start and finish location has been moved down the street so that friends and families can watch you finish in traditional ” beach finish” style!

Higgs Beach is the new race start, located at 1000 Atlantic Boulevard (about 1 mile from last years start). This county beach has clean changing rooms and bathrooms, a full service restaurant, and more parking!

There will be board caddies at our board drop off location if you would like to enjoy this service free of charge!

Please note race start times are subject to change

Board rentals will be available but reserve now as we always sell out!
