Description

The 8th Annual SUP & RUN 5K event will be held at Nathan Benderson Park to benefit Operation Second Chance (www.OperationSecondChance.org) and RUCK9 (www.RUCK9.com).  

The SUP & RUN 5K gives athletes three great races in one to choose from

  • 5K RUN 
  • 5K Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) OR
  • 5K SUP & 5K RUN 
    (There is a start line mat (chip) for the combination SUP & RUN)
Athletes participating in the combination SUP & RUN will run the 5K first and then hop on their paddle board for a 5K paddle around Nathan Benderson Park.  The SUP & RUN 5K draws top runners and SUP'ers who compete for cash prizes but it's our not-so-serious athletes who have the most prominent place in the event.
 
Athletes participating in the SUP portion of the race MUST know how to swimIf you are not able to swim, you may not participate in the SUP portion.
Athletes PADDLING for the First Time must attend the FREE Clinic the evening before the event. 
 
The SUP & RUN 5K is a family style event.
 
WALKERS ARE WELCOME and encouraged to attend.
 
Why choose the SUP & RUN 5K? 
  1. Every finisher receives a custom finisher medal.
  2. The race shirts are AMAZING!
  3. AWARDS GO 6 DEEP IN EACH 5 YEAR AGE GROUP!
  4. SWAG, to quote a participant, "this race SWAG is truly head and shoulders above most races"
  5. The food & post-race celebration party is FUN! FUN! 
  6. Whoa! There is a beer garden, a SIP & RUM station and AMAZING VENDORS where you can buy really cool stuff AND
  7. The Athletes, Vendors, Sponsors, and Spectators: ALL CELEBRATING OUR VETERANS and Uniquely Created Canines!
