Timucuan Challenge UPDATES

Be sure to check this page frequently in case of any changes during the last weeks before the event. 

bulletThe Timucuan Challenge Paddle Race is being postponed temporarily. It will not take place on 10/1/06, as originally planned. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are currently looking into a new date with favorable tides and currents. Please watch our web site for future details. Of course, any entry fees already paid will be refunded -- or given to Climb for Cancer Foundation, at the choice of the entrant. If you have any questions, please contact the race director at (904) 285-1552 during normal office hours.
bulletIn place of the competition on 10/1/06, there will be a friendly, recreational paddle and all are invited. Please arrive before 9:00am to meet other paddlers and to take part.
bulletThe 2006 Timucuan Challenge Paddle Race will be ... rescheduled. All racers will start at 9:00am from the lagoon side of Huguenot Park in Jacksonville, just north of the St Johns River. We will be meeting at and starting from Shelter #3, on the Ft George Inlet (lagoon) side of the Park, not far from the Park Store and restrooms.
bulletHuguenot Memorial Park opens at 8:00am. It is located at 10980 Heckscher Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32226, at the eastern end of Heckscher Drive before crossing the Ft George River to Little Talbot Island. Click here for directions and map. Plan to enter the Park just after 8:00, as it is popular and could have a waiting line when it opens. Get a map of the Park at the entry gate and drive to Shelter #3, on the Ft George Inlet side of the Park, not far from the Park Store and restrooms.
bulletComfort Inn - Mayport is our host hotel. It is located on the south side of the St Johns River, so those staying there will need to plan to get on the Ferry early enough to enter Huguenot Park and be set up for the Start at 9:00am. Click here for details about directions to the hotel and discounts.
bulletMaps/Charts of the race course are available online - click here - and you may download and print them for use in the races. You may also buy topo maps of the area and use them during the race -- info about such purchases is available at the same page online.
bulletSafety is important to us -- all racers will be required to bring and wear Coast Guard-approved lifejackets. Carrying a first aid kit and sufficient water or sports drink is also necessary. We also strongly advise having a fully-charged cell phone, kayak bilge pump and a fully waterproof map/document case for each boat, as well as sunglasses, hat, cockpit cover/skirt, and extra paddle for each racer. 
bulletKayak rentals are available -- click here to see some of the kayak outfitters that we know and can recommend.
Cancellation Policy: Much of the cost of providing a race is spent long before you arrive at the race site. In fact, most of our costs need to be paid in advance and are not recoverable. Typically, we go forward with a race "rain or shine." If severe weather conditions or other issues out of our control (such as hurricane or the closing of the race site by order of the local government), we will postpone and reschedule our race. The race organizers are not responsible for such changes in schedule, and will credit any paid entries toward the rescheduled race date. If a written cancellation of registration is initiated by the participant more than 21 days in advance of the event date, full credit will be available. If participant's cancellation notice is sent 21 days or less (before the race), a 75% credit will be applied; 10 days or less, a 50% credit; less than 96 hours notice, or no notice ("no shows") will receive no credit. Any such credit is good for 180 days from the date of the scheduled event toward entry/registration in another similar Performance Multisports event. Refunds are not available.
