Adventure Sports is happy to announce the first annual running of the Mad Matheson Marathon!! This will be a downwind, all-out sprint on any board and any kite of your choice. Windsurfers can participate as well. Starting from Virginia Key Beach Park (“Windsurfer Beach”) in Miami, and finishing at Matheson Hammock Park. The event will be held on one day within a 3-day waiting period, between December 28, 29, or 30. Registration will be $45 and will include a BBQ and beverages at Matheson Park following the race.
Registration is live and can be found at RegattaToolbox.com. The chosen date for the race will be announced on Wednesday, December 12th via email, as well as through the Adventure Sports Facebook page.
Race procedure and course will be announced to all competitors during a pre-race meeting to be held on Virginia Key beach prior to the start of the race.
All racers must wear, while racing, some sort of personal flotation device that will be checked by the race officers prior to starting. All racers must also carry a phone or other small communication device on them while racing – this will also be checked by the race officers prior to the start of the race.
Parking is limited, so please carpool, Uber, etc. in order to minimize our vehicle impact at the beach.
Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in a multitude of disciplines (first junior, female, senior, surfboard, twintip, foil, etc.). See you on the starting line!
