The 16-mile race starts on the Gulf side of Turtle Beach and finishes in Blind Pass at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key. Starting in the Gulf, participants will paddle north past Siesta Key’s famous Beach and into Big Sarasota Pass. Riding the incoming tide into Sarasota Bay, participants will paddle around the north end of Siesta Key and then swing south under Siesta Key’s North Bridge. Paddling south, participants will enter Robert’s Bay going past mangrove islands and beautiful waterfront homes. Once under Siesta Key’s South Bridge, participants will enter Little Sarasota Bay. Turning right around a race marker buoy, participants will paddle towards and then into Blind Pass Canal after rounding a point of the island. Once in Blind Pass Canal, participants will paddle north to the finish line at the end of the canal.

The 6-mile race starts and finishes in Blind Pass Canal. You'll start from the finish line area and paddle south down the canal and out into Little Sarasota Bay, turning north up the bay to a race marker buoy where you'll turn around and paddle back to the finish line.
