3rd Annual Shamrock SUP Race

Are you eager to get out on the water soon? Charleston SUP Safaris is hosting its Third Annual Shamrock SUP Race on Sunday, March 16th from 1-4 p.m.  You don’t have to get in the water, but instead get ready to enjoy a stand up paddleboard eye view of the Folly River.  Race participants can sign up for the 5k, 10k, kids race, or if you and your pet have what it takes, sign up for the tandem dog/owner race.  Race participants are urged to dress up in their best Saint Patty’s Day gear, and prizes will be awarded to the best costumes.

This year the Shamrock SUP Race will benefit Youth 2 Ocean—a local water sports nonprofit. Participants are encouraged to register early.  The registration fee for the 10k and 5k race is $40, the kids and dog race is $25, and rental paddleboards are $10.  The paddleboard rentals are first come first served so make sure you arrive early.  Racers are also encouraged to dress their dogs up as well.  Make sure you buy raffle tickets as lot of prizes will be given away after the race.  A silent auction will also be held which will include a Getaway on Folly Beach prize.  The winners and top finishers of each race will receive awards. 

According to Charleston SUP Safaris Facebook page, the “Surfrider Foundation and Earthforce group from James Island Middle School will provide educational info about being Green on our waterways.”  After the race, join the Shamrock race crowd for the after party at Surf Bar.  Enjoy free food, drinks, and live music on the Surf Bar deck.  For more information, visit to download the application form or you can sign up the day of the race.
