The Weeks Bay Foundation’s 5th Annual Pelican Paddle Canoe and Kayak Race is a fun, family-oriented race for all ages and skill levels. Plus, there’s a 7-mile pro option for the serious paddlers, and a non-competitive, guided Eco-Tour of Weeks Bay, located in Baldwin County between Fairhope and Foley.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be awarded in the following divisions: Men’s Kayak, Women’s Kayak, Junior Kayak, Pro Kayak, Tandem Craft, Non-Traditional (single canoes, pedal kayaks, etc.), and Stand Up Paddle Board. The Eco-Tour begins after the racers take off. Entry includes hot dog lunch, water/soft drinks, a Pelican Paddle t-shirt, and a chance to win a kayak and other prizes! Food from local food trucks will be available for purchase. A limited number of loaner kayaks available, but must be reserved in advance. To register, visit www.weeksbay.org, or call 251-990-5004.
