Results for 2014 Beast Kayak

Thank you to all the racers that attended our 2nd Annual Beast Kayak/Canoe Race. We were quite pleased with the number of exceptionally strong paddle sport athletes that stepped up to the challenge this year. As this was just the second year for our event, we are still on the upward slope of the learning curve, and observations from this past Saturday have already allowed us to identify ways in which to make the 2015 Beast even better.

In the results section below you will notice a change to the order of finishers for the Men’s Touring Kayak category. We mistakenly had Mike Thomas listed in the Men’s Racing Kayak category. Based on the boat he paddled, he should have been placed in the Men’s Touring Kayak category. This mistake was not pointed out until after the awards had been presented. We apologize to Mike Thomas and all the other racers in the Men’s Touring Kayak category for this error. We also congratulate Mike and all the other racers in both divisions for finishing a challenging race under windy conditions.
