2020 Chattajack The Virtual Edition

We are humbled and saddened to have announced that CJ 2020 has been cancelled due to the global pandemic.  In response to some of the outreach, we would like to offer the option of a virtual paddle race.  It’s a far cry from the real deal but we’re excited to present a platform promoting some friendly competition across a diverse geographic platform, online camaraderie, and a healthy way to stay focused and motivated during this challenging season the world is going through together.

1. Choose anywhere you want to paddle/race 16 or 31 miles during the window of October 1st – October 24th.  Hint: Go where Mother Nature will help you i.e. a long fast river or perhaps an oceanic downwinder!  
2. Make sure and take your GPS device for bragging rights and submit a link to your paddle if you want! (Speedcoach/Garmin/Strava whatevs you got).  
3. Submit your data to us, or don't, but definitely ENJOY your paddle. Send us photos and videos too! All submitted times and results will be kept under wraps until October 31st. 

Registration will stay open through October 24th.

We realize a virtual race isn’t the same as walking down a gangway with hundreds of fellow paddlers, music blaring, vibes on point, feels for the reals, BUT we’re excited about this CJ virtual edition for a couple reasons: 1. It will be the first time we get to paddle our own race in a number of years haha! Look out You, we’re coming for ya!  2. We’re excited to see all the creative ways and places people harness Mother Nature to blast like a rocket ship through 16 or 31 miles. 3. Lastly, during this time of pandemic unrest we’re excited at the opportunity of creating a catalyst of celebrating you and your personal virtual 16 or 31 mile race/epic with the hopes of introducing you to the broader community.  

Open to ALL paddlers SUP, PRONE, KAYAK, OC1, SURFSKI, FOIL or anything you can paddle.  NO awards just bragging rights. 
Continental US: $55 USD includes gear and shipping 
International: $85 USD (due to shipping costs)

All entrants will be mailed a Chattajack backpack with an athletic race t-shirt, CJ water bottle, stickers, and finisher medal. Entry fee includes domestic/international shipping.
