Note if choppy see the Race Director might either shorten course or change direction of course going towards Middle Island 700m and return to Deep Water Bay. After Kayak cross road by bus stop to golf course and on LEFT side of golf course entrance enter small dirt trail that goes behind golf course and up to cement catchwater (just over 1km), then left turn on catchwater and hike 500m more (flat) and marshal will be at road to turn you around as this is turn around junction approx 1.8 km from beach. Same way back to beach along catchwater and down golf course trail, cross road safely and back at beach for 3.6km total trail hike. Minimum age 5. One person must be at least 18 yrs old in kayak for safety reasons. FUN and not a serious race.

Family event is not a serious race as designed for fun without timing. OK we will do timing, but idea is too have fun and enjoy yourselves and not go crazy trying to race each other. Time limit is 50 minutes for kayak and total 1 hour 30 minutes for complete race.

ADULT - Kayak n Run - 4.5 km ocean kayak - 7 km trail run

RACE PACK PICK UP on race day morning  for confirmed ADULT teams who have registered online and paid in advance.
Adult Deep Water Bay course details:

Start at Deep Water Bay, Kayaking out towards Ocean Park, then left around bouy towards Middle Island, around Middle Island back to Deep Water Bay beach cp1. Remove lifevests as finished kayak now and go thru big tunnel under road (we don't want anyone crossing main busy road) running behind the golf course near Wong Nai Chung gap direction to cp 2 on the catchwater junction. Then next cp3 near bottom of "stairs from hell", then next cp4 near top of Mt Nicolson, water will be available on Blacks Link road by top of stairs from hell and available in both directions when you pass (not a timing cp), next last 2 cps (the same as first 2 cps that you came by earlier by bottom of stairs from hell and the first cp on the catchwater behind golf course. Finish at Deep Water Bay after running again thru tunnel on beach. You'll see by the cp order we're trying our best to keep you off the main roads. Note Race organizer reserves the right to change course if needed.

Come early to cheer on family event.

Adult race course description - Level of difficulty: If you are a beginner we would highly recommend some sort of upper body training (outrigging, dragonboating, fitness centre) as this is not a walk in the park and ocean kayaking can be more difficult from bad weather, large swells, currents, waves, bad navigation, etc.

Course markings - Only beach and mtn check points marked as teams MUST NAVIGATE themselves. Highly recommend you bring map in waterproof holder or ziplock bag. Compass or GPS recommended if you don't know area. Try to recce the area if you have time before race as fairly easy to find. If bringing phone make sure in waterproof pouch.


Prizes- ADULT RACE - Trophies and certificates for overall top 3 teams. Prizes from sponsors.

Shirts - For Deep Water Bay race.


Open to 60 teams (of 2) in each category. First come first serve unless you bring your own Feelfree double kayak, but still must pay the entry fee.
