2016 South Walton RUN/SUP Series
The Walton Area Chamber of Commerce recently announced they will host the 2016 South Walton RUN/SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Series event on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at Grayton Beach State Park from 9 am until 2 pm; with the After Party and Awards Ceremony occurring at The Craft Bar 30A from 2-5pm that day.

Following last year’s successful inaugural event, the 2016 South Walton RUN/SUP Series will once again consist of a 2 mile circuit through the beautiful Grayton Beach State Park in Walton County, Florida before slicing across Western Lake, a rare Coastal Dune Lake, on a SUP Board for an additional 2 mile leg. With 4 total races, a world-renowned venue and both Family and Competitive/Advanced groups, the 2016 South Walton RUN/SUP Series will continue to set a standard in the local and regional athletic communities for the future.
With RUN/SUP once again sponsoring the event, a limited amount of new RUN/SUP boards will be available for rental on the day of the event, should a participant need one. Be sure to select that you will need a board provided when registering. Boards up to 12’6” are allowed.
Participants in the first race can arrive as early as 8 am with the races beginning promptly at 9 am. Board rentals are limited and available for an extra fee when registering online.
Day of event parking is available at Grayton State Park. Overflow parking will be available at The Craft Bar 30A and Pandora’s Steakhouse & Lounge for those renting boards or for those that are strictly there to observe the race and cheer family and friends to the finish line. Parking instructions will be noted in all racer packets.
