Come to Charleston's first big race!! There will be two race courses offered, a 2-mile short course for beginners and a 6-mile course for more experienced paddlers. Both will be ocean courses with start and finish on the beach. Spread the word!

The race was a great event.  There was a great turn out, awesome weather, and a lot of wind and chop that made both races fun and challenging.  Great Job to all of the organizers of the event. Thank you very much for making it happen.  Hopefully the results will get posted soon.

Can't wait for the next SUP race in Charleston. There seems to be a really strong race seen building here in the southeast and it great to see.

From Tara Miller and Mike Owens:
The first annual “Run What Ya Brung” SUP race was a huge success!
Even with the challenging (and exciting) wind and water conditions, we
had 39 racers including 9 women (way to persevere) and 2 youth (our
next generation of waterman). A huge amount of thanks and gratitude
goes out to everyone who raced, and all the volunteers who made it
happen. Charleston, way to represent!

Mike’s only regret for the event is that he didn’t get to
personally meet everyone who participated. We have some ideas for
improvements for the next event that will hopefully make things run
just a little smoother so that we will all have more time to
socialize.

Results are at the bottom of this message, and we’ll post photos as soon as we have them, but first a few special notes:

* This race would not have happened without our volunteers. These
volunteers from Dragon Boat Charleston and the South Carolina Canoe
and Kayak Team provide tremendous ongoing support and promotion of all
paddle sports in Charleston. A shout out to Charlie Molnar on the safety boat…many of you probably didn’t even know he was there, but he was making sure everyone stayed safe.

* Thanks to Half Moon Outfitters and Surftech for their support of
this event. With the race proceeds and Half Moon’s matching
contribution, we are able to give $500+ to Louie’s Kids to fight
childhood obesity.

* Thanks to Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission for supporting this race a providing the awesome venue. A big additional thanks to their lifeguards who were super friendly and provided invaluable water support on jet skis.

* A special thanks to our 5 racers from North Carolina. As Mike
and I can attest personally, it takes energy and effort to get up
before the crack of dawn to travel to your neighboring state,
participate in a grueling competition, and then travel back home the
same day. We certainly appreciate the reciprocation. It really
made our first race well-rounded and exciting.

* Last, but certainly not least, thanks to our 2 youth racers,
Hannah Floyd and Ben Holmquist, for being a humbling and happy
reminder for why we’re all out there on the water in the first
place. Hannah, your enthusiasm and huge smiles are an inspiration.
Ben, your courage to do the race and face the conditions completely on
your own is an inspiration. We hope you spread your enthusiasm!

Thanks again everyone! We hope to see you all on the water!
