Notes for kayakers:

  • Expect rough ground and asphalt, wear appropriate shoes for running to make connections with cyclists!
  • Please bring kayaks to Emigrant Lake the day of the race.
  • You do not need to pay the $4 to enter Emigrant Lake Park: they will do a car count and charge it to Rogue Valley Farm to School. Donations to help defray the parking costs are welcome and can be made here or at the RVF2S booth at ScienceWorks on race day. Thank you.
  • The State of Oregon takes invasive species very seriously. Please rinse your kayak before arriving at the Lake unless you've been kayaking at the Lake! ARC Boathouse will offer a Rinsing Station for use after the kayak leg. Crafts ten feet long and over must have a State of Oregon Invasive Species Permit available for $5 at local Bi-Mart Stores.
