RACE DETAILS: Adult and adolescent racers will start on the beach front, beginning with men's and women's adult brackets, followed by the adolescent mixed bracket. More "recreational" participants who want to "ride & glide" the course will be asked to position themselves behind competitive racers as needed. The children’s sprint will take place once the adolescent bracket has cleared the area.
