Location: Hunting Island State Park in Beaufort SC. Take Hwy 21 S through Beaufort toward Fripp and Hunting Islands. Note: Hunting Island is approximately 15 miles from Beaufort and the park entrance tends to back up so allow plenty of time.
Course: Paddlers will start and finish at the base of the Lagoon located near South Beach Parking 'J'. The kayak leg will go south out of the lagoon and then turn right into Fripp Inlet until circling a buoy for the return leg. Paddle leg is between 5 and 6 miles. Upon beaching your boat back at the base of the lagoon, the running leg will be approximately 4.5 miles through a pristine forest. Some of the course may be on primitive trails. This is an Adventure Race and you can expect some light challenges (no orienteering!).
Start Time: 11:00AM * remember to come early enough to off load kayak and enter Park through gate. Park entrance requires either a State Park pass or one day pass. Gate tends to back up during peak times.
