Put In Creek Duathlon
September 6 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree
Annual Labor Day Event
3 mile run + 2.5 mile kayak, starting & ending in Mathews Courthouse area, transition point at Williams Wharf. Sound like a good time to you? Then feel free to join us on Labor Day 2021: Monday, Sep 6th. That’s right: it’s free & open to everyone.
Location. This event will start and end at Put-In-Creek park and pavilion in Mathews Courthouse. Just a few years ago, the town of Mathews built a new dock and kayak ramp there so getting in and out of the water is really easy. The creek is tidal so we schedule it to finish very near high tide to ensure no one gets stuck in the mud.
High Tide on 6 Sep 2021 is 9:02am ET
2021 Schedule. Participants will drop off kayak at Williams Wharf at 8am (we’ll have a volunteer posted there to keep an eye on the kayaks and assist with the transition) and drive to starting area at Put-In-Creek park. We’ll have brief instructions and start as close to 8:30am as possible. We’ve done this course several times – no one has done it as a relay, but that is certainly an option if you want to divide it up with another person.
