South Tahoe Standup Paddle’s Race the Lake of the Sky has a first place prize all its own.
You can walk to this event right from our Beach here at Lakeshore Lodge. Fun event to watch. They have great food booths set up and live music!
The South Shore stand-up paddle race which drew some of the sport’s top international athletes last year was chosen as the No. 1 standup paddle event in the world by paddle athlete Anthony Vela on the Supconnect Live Show earlier this year.
Lake Tahoe doesn’t plan to stop with the 2012 race. Planning for the second annual Race the Lake of the Sky started a couple weeks after the first event wrapped up and Brackett said he hopes to draw double the number of competitors and spectators.
This year’s race is slated for June 29-30 and will offer youth races, a distance race, a team relay, the El Dorado five miler and a SUP cross event similar to its snow relatives, ski and boardercross.
