First Annual Folly River Shamrock SUP Race

Folly Beach-based company Charleston SUP Safaris is celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day by inviting the community out to take part in the first annual Folly River Shamrock SUP Race from 8 am. – noon on Saturday, March 17 to benefit Pet Helpers on James Island and the Emerson Rose Heart Foundation.

The race will get everyone from well-seasoned paddleboard enthusiasts to novice paddleboard fans and even kids and dogs out there on the water (granted dogs can only get on the paddleboards with a person).

There will be four races the day of the event. The 10k Elite Race begins at 9 a.m. and has a registration fee of $35, the 5k Recreational Race begins at 9:05 a.m. and has a registration fee of $35, the Kids Race begins at 10:45 a.m. and has a registration fee of $20, and the Dog SUP event begins at 11 a.m. and has a registration fee of $20.

SUP boards will be available for rent for $10 the day of the event.

To register for the event now, contact Charleston SUP Safaris. Registration can also be done the day of the event. Meet the Charleston SUP Safari group at 83 Center Street.

Because the race takes place on Saint Patrick’s Day, participants are encouraged to get into the spirit and dress up in as much green as possible for the chance to win prizes.

In addition, there will be a silent auction and raffle.

This event marks the season-opening for Charleston SUP Safaris and owner Jon Ory said anyone interested in getting out on the water for the stand-up paddleboard experience should come out and give it a try.
