You’re in for a great race at Dale Hollow. The Park is beautiful, the Lake is clear, and the food and accommodations are superb. We’re really excited about turning you loose on this 6 Hour course and seeing what happens! As promised, this one will be all about good race strategy, decisions, and time management. We have over 100 racers coming out to play; a bunch of first-timers and several veterans that will be in-it to win-it. With that said, if you’d read over this little communication it’ll make your weekend go much more smoothly.

If you arranged for rentals, they will be staged for you already. No other gear may be left with your paddle gear – paddles and PFDs only. Do not try to squirrel away water, food, clothes or ANYTHING else with your boats Bring your bikes to the START – there is NO staging for your bikes. View from a sweet checkpoint set atop an overlook. The amount of poison ivy within the Park that you’ll be traipsing through is significant enough for us to mention it in writing, which means it’s pretty thick. Plan accordingly. All mandatory gear included on the list must be carried at all times for the legs specified. Be prepared for gear-checks. Each team/solo will receive one 1:24,000 scale map and race instructions printed on waterproof paper (size is 11 x 17). You will get your map at check in – check in will not start prior to 7:30am. MANDATORY GEAR LIST Note, you may (or may not) find the Dale Hollow Park Map useful; a copy can be found in the main lobby of the Lodge or online at this link. We’ve GPS’d the trails and overlaid them on your actual race-map. Generally, the trails on the Park Map are pretty inaccurately depicted, so use at your own discretion. If you’re attending the free navigation Friday evening, meet at the Shelter (you’ll see the sign to the shelter right after the campground turnoff coming in to the Park). Pants and a compass are a good idea – mind the poison ivy. isn’t only the presenting sponsor, but an instrumental part in keeping our KY State Parks thriving. If you haven’t, please check them out! We’ll be posting updates and photos on Facebook, so consider giving us a like.
