Run-Paddle 02 (transparent)


Race Recap

The second race in the Run & Paddle Series was held on Sunday, June 7th at the Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora. Racers started on Lake Dora and paddled approximately two miles to Trimble Park on Lake Beauclaire. Here they faced a mystery challenge that involved throwing a golf ball at a cow bell before running 1 1/2 miles on the park trails. The competitors then jumped back in their boats and returned to Lake Dora.

Georgio and Javy of Team Boricuas quickly took the lead after the start and maintained it through the trail run. They finished a minute ahead of Team Coffee in the two-person division. Peter Gelzinis recorded the fastest solo time – 1:14:04. Gelzinis and Team Boricuas have now won the first two races in the Run & Paddle Series. The series finale will be the Run Yak ( on Aug. 15th in Casselberry, FL.

Run and Paddle Races are a great way to get in a good workout and see spectacular scenery.

In the Team division, racers will paddle one mile from Lake Dora into Lake Beauclair. They will beach their canoes at Trimble Park. One team member will run a two-mille trail run around the park. Racers will then leave the park and paddle back to the Lakeside Inn. Canoes, paddles and PFDs are all supplied.

In the Solo division racers complete all parts of the race (see above). Solo racers must supply their own canoe or kayak.

This event is part of a three-race series sponsored by Travel Country Outdoors. Enter all three races to be eligible for hundreds of dollars in prizes.
