Check-In times are March 29th from 5-7 pm on March 30th from 6:30-7 A.M at Capitol View Park. (please check-in on the 29th if at all possible). PLEASE NOTE: EKI strives to host zero waste events and has implemented a “packet-less” pickup process at registration. Please understand that you will not receive a packet full of miscellaneous products from various vendors. At previous events past years we have realized that this process tends to leave the event with excessive items that never end up being used. Instead, you will be handed a reusable bag and will have the opportunity to pick up select items from event sponsors that come to the registration. We hope you understand this “less is more” registration process.
FINISH LINE: Athletes will paddle their kayak/Canoe/SUP to Riverview Park where competitors will be timed from the shore.
All competitors are asked to gather at the announcers podium at the Kentucky State Capitol for a mandatory racer meeting at 8 A.M.
Kentucky State Capitol Address: 700 Capital Ave, Frankfort, KY 40601
Equipment Drop Off & Rentals
During equipment drop-off, vehicles must pull into the designated drop-off area and unload their vehicle and move out to park at an off-site location as soon as possible. Also after the race, participants must use the designated pick-up area to load their equipment. Due to the small event site area, we ask that participants please be prepared to unload and load their equipment as quickly as they can. We will have volunteers available for assistance.
Please, please, please try and drop off your kayak/SUP and bike at the event site during the Friday staging time. The event site space is limited and there will be LOTS of traffic, so for your own peace of mind, we ask you drop your bike/boat off on Friday.
Athletes are required to supply their own equipment, including bikes (road bikes or mountain bikes), helmets (mandatory), water transportation (kayak/canoe/stand up paddle board/etc), and paddles. Kayak rentals are available through Canoe Kentucky in Frankfort.
