Come experience the beauty of Cubihatcha while testing your fitness at this one of a kind event! The first year of this event will be limited to 100 participants so sign up today and don't get left out!
For the paddle portion you will be allowed to use either a kayak, canoe, or stand up paddle board.
We will not provide or rent bikes, kayaks, canoes, or paddle boards. You must bring your own.
The minimum age for this event is 15 years old.
Start/Finish and Staging - The start and finish of all three legs of the race will be held at the Cubihatcha office parking area. This will also be where you will stage your bikes. Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards will be staged nearby (less than .25 mile) at the beach.
The Run - The run will start at the Cubihatcha office parking area and you will head out onto the trails that will take you to the Towilaga river and then return back to the office. The trails are well groomed and not very technical. While there are no major hills the course is rolling.
The Bike - Once finished with the run you will then hop your bike to do two seven mile loops on the trail that goes around the reservoir. This trail is very flat, however it is trail and a road bike will not work. You will start and finish the bike at the office parking area.
The Paddle - Once finished with the bike you will make a short run over to the beach (less than .25 mile). Here you will put your kayak/canoe/sup in the water and paddle a loop around the buoys for a 1.5 mile paddle. Once you have pulled your kayak/canoe/sup out of the water you will make the short run back to finish at the office parking area.
All participants are required to wear a helmet on the bike and wear a life vest that fits properly on the water. These will not be provided and you must bring your own. If you forget them you will not participate and there will be no refunds.
The Henry County dive team will be present and have 2 boats in the water with rescue personnel as well as an ambulance and paramedic on site.
We have the authority to pull participants from the course if for any reason we feel a participants safety is in jeopardy. There will be no refund if this occurs.
There will be an aid station at the Start/Finish area stocked with water and gatorade as well as other fuels such as fruit, cookies, and assorted snacks.
Georgia is very hot in July...please carry a water bottle. While each leg of this race is not in itself very difficult it will take at least two hours to complete all three. That is a long time to be in the Georgia heat and humidity so please hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. You don't want to cramp up while crammed in a kayak and unable to stretch.
Swag and Awards
All participants will receive a short sleeve race t-shirt and finisher medal. There will be age group awards for top 3 in each age group in the individual event for male and female. There will be awards for top 3 male and female overall in the individual event and for the top team in the relay event.
Built in 1999, the Cubihatcha Outdoor Education Center is a wetland enhancement and protection corridor created to improve and protect existing wildlife habitats, while also providing an avenue for public education and enjoyment.
Local time: 10:15 AM
The HCWA developed this area as part of a wetland mitigation plan during construction of our reservoir system. The center encompasses almost 1,000 contiguous acres of bottomland, hardwood, and forested wetlands and uplands, which are typical features of our Piedmont area.
Being situated between three of the county's reservoirs enables the HCWA to protect the valuable and diverse fish and wildlife habitats of the area. Cubihatcha also aids in the protection of high water quality. Aside from the limited clearing of trees and the construction of raised wooden boardwalks, the trails, and outdoor classrooms, the area has been left in its natural state.
