Ever wanted to try stand up paddleboard racing? Here’s your chance. Mountain Gear is putting on five SUP races on Liberty Lake this summer (consecutive Thursday evenings): July 17, 24, 31 and August 7 and 14. All races start at 6:30 p.m. sharp. Enter to race one or two laps in divisions for men, women, and youth. There will be a different course each week, with a lap taking an average paddler around 30 minutes. Race all five and you get a logoed Hawaiian shirt. Prizes will be doled out “luck of the draw” style, so everyone who comes out to paddle has a chance at taking home some great Mountain Gear swag. Racers must wear Coast Guard certified PFDs and sign a waiver. The races will go on in all weather conditions except lightning. The cost is $15 per person. Register at Mountain Gear (2002 N. Division). More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/633110093452107/?ref=5. //
