Last year I made it my goal to do whatever I could to help bring WPA racing to Chicago and I couldn't be any more excited to say, 'It's happening!'
Working with my friends at Windward Boardshop, I've teamed up with the crew from The Chicago Shoreline Marathon to bring WPA racing to our amazing city on August 11th. The CSM has been running for the past 6 years and is a world-renowned surfski, kayak and outrigger canoe race, drawing participants from around the world. This year, we're adding WPA-sanctioned SUP racing to the 8-mile, 2 beach race. There will also be a 3-mile recreational race, board demos and lots of other fun activities.
Head over to the CSM website to learn more and to register, and of course keep your eye on this blog for updates and current info as the summer progresses. You can also like The Chicago Shoreline Marathon on facebook here. See you at the race!
