| January 25, 2017

Water enthusiasts of all ages and expertise are invited to join ABC Events in the 2nd annual Bay Bridge Paddle on April 29th, open to Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, Outriggers, and other paddle craft.

Launching from the iconic Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, MD, there will be something for everyone! Events will include an Elite 9 mile course that traverses the Chesapeake Bay while paddling underneath the Bay Bridge, one of the world’s longest open water structures and a truly unique experience. There will also be a 5K open race for intermediate paddlers, and a fun filled 1.5k recreational course closer to the beach area. (children and adults welcome). Plan to stay for the day and enjoy the Beach Party, with live music, obstacle course, activities for the whole family, food, and beer.

New this year, on Friday, April 28, there will be a packet pick-up for registered racers along with a not-to-be-missed clinic sponsored by Mercy Medical Center’s Orthopedic & Sports Medicine surgeon John-Paul Rue, M.D. and a variety of vendors for those last minute race purchases.  A carb loaded racer dinner will also be offered.  The official hotel sponsor, Crowne Plaza in Annapolis, will be hosting the activities on Friday.  In addition, they have a block of rooms on reserve for out of town guests. Please see the FAQ for discount & hotel details. 

With the generous backing of sponsors, there will be over $7,000 in prizes and cash awarded across the various paddle categories!
