For the sixth consecutive year, our Iron Eagle Paddle & Run fundraiser is set for Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Eagle Creek Park’s Beach! This adventure race is motivated by our desire to raise funds for the betterment of Eagle Creek Park (100% of proceeds benefit the Foundation!). The race is open to all ages. Solo and 2-person teams are all welcome!

Please join us for a tour of one of the nation’s largest city parks while catching a glimpse of the park’s wonderful scenery. Competitors have the option to bring their own kayak or canoe, or rent a boat in advance through Eagle Creek Outfitters. All participants bringing their own water craft are required to bring a PFD (personal flotation device), otherwise known as a life jacket.

Trail Run – 2.5 mi
Paddle – 1.5 mi
Trail Run – 2.5 mi

The course is set up similar to a triathlon with a transition area where you can stage your gear for each leg.

Boat Rentals (book in advance):

The race will begin at the beach area at 8:00 am.
