In nearly ten years of holding the Lake Murray Paddle Classic, we’ve never had to make such a difficult decision. But with the advice from our Lake Murray Paddle Club and public and private partners who are key to helping us host a successful event on Lake Murray, we have decided to postpone our race till 2021. For any of you who have already registered through Paddleguru, we will work with you on refunds.
If you’ve attended our race over the last years, you know one of the best things was having our local Special Olympics Paddling Pirates team race with us. Our event has raised more than $25,000 to provide them gear, storage, even travel expenses to the National SO games where our paddlers did us proud! Keep these athletes in mind, as their paddling program has also been sidelined because of the local COVID situation.
Stay safe, everyone! Keep paddling. We’ll get through this and be back stronger than ever.
