10k Long Course Description*
6.2 mile race with short beach run. Long Course division includes both male and female SUP and Prone competitors racing a two lap paddle course with a short beach run in between laps 1 and 2 and a final beach sprint to the finish.

Lap one takes competitors from the beach in front of the Dream inn out around the Santa Cruz Wharf to the Santa Cruz Harbor and back. After a short beach run, racers will hit the water again headed for a course marker set just off of Steamer lane’s “Middle Peak” then back to the Santa Cruz Harbor, and back around the Santa Cruz Wharf to the beach for a short beach sprint to the finish.

*Outriggers and skis have a water start. They will also skip the run in favor of a buoy turn instead.
