Recreational paddleboarders and pros have a new stand up paddleboard race to test their paddling skills or just have fun with other SUP enthusiasts. The Spokatopia SUP Cup, a new event added to the 5thannual Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival this year, will take place on the lake-like waters of the Spokane River above the Upriver Dam at Boulder Beach on Sunday, July 14. Both the recreational and elite races kickoff with a beach start and finish, with cash prizes for the elite race winners and swag for the recreational race winners. The recreational race, designed for anyone with basic paddling experience, is a 1-mile distance with three buoy turns. The elite race is a 4-mile out-and-back race with a $500 cash prize for the top male and female racers. Set for 1-3:30 p.m., this race will be a great spectator event for the whole family.
