We are so excited to have you join us for the 10th Annual YOLO Board Relay Series presented by YOLO Board Adventures!
The YOLO crew is stoked to kick off this event, as it will be a true celebration of community, family and friends.
So many of you have been with us from the start, and we thank you for your participation. The Bay Restaurant at the southern foot of the 331 bridge is our fantastic venue again this year. Parking is available at the lot just south of the event marked with parking flags. We will have Special Olympics, women, men and coed teams again as well as a Grande board race and a fun race for the kids.
Coastal Skin Surgery, Pier Park, and Grayton Beer will set up tents on the beach. Beverages will be provided by Grayton Beer Company with fantastic food from The Bay restaurant. Be sure to come early to get inked, pick up your swag bag as well as food and drink tickets at the registration tent.
This year, We will be raffling off a YOLO Board to benefit The Sonder Project, a locally-based nonprofit organization focused on high-impact, sustainable projects aimed at ending extreme poverty and fighting hunger around the world. You do not have to be present to win, so tell all of your friends to support this great cause.
If you haven't already, SIGN UP YOUR TEAM HERE!
Announcing themes for this year: Race 1: Sports Teams Race 2: Superheroes Race 3: Fairytail.
We love seeing your creativity and while costumes are encouraged, they are by no means mandatory.
On race day, our Special Olympic athletes will paddle at 4:30pm, ladies at 5:30, men at 6 and co-ed at 6:30. Boards will be provided for each race. No need to bring a board, but you are welcome to bring your own paddle. Each registered paddler will receive 1 meal ticket and 2 drink tickets which must be presented to receive food and beverages. Food and drinks available for spectators at The Bay. Be sure to stick around for prize drawings throughout the evening.
Our dates this year are: May 18, June 15, and July 20 (third Thursday of each month.)
