The 12th annual Tahoe Cup Paddle Race Series is on for 2020 with the bust-out, bucket-list favorites you've come to expect along with two new, super cool race formats.
Each race features age group and craft categories for OC6 (6-person crews), and individual SUP, OC1, surf ski, and prone classes.
Race Series Overview
Get started in early summer with the new, innovative Double Relay, where two-person teams relay race over 12 miles on a single OC1, surf ski, SUP, or prone board to claim a podium spot.
Mid-summer brings the whole family to the Grom Festival, our celebration of the next generation of paddlers with a weekend of racing and water games.
In the heart of the Tahoe sunny-weather season, the August Downwinder busts out courtesy of the gusty afternoon thrill-ride winds and swells.
And, of course, the perfect way to cap off your paddling season - experience the world's most beautiful endurance paddling race - the epic Lake Crossing - 18 miles of pure scenic bliss and determination.
Adults racing the Double Relay, Downwinder, and the Lake Crossing compete for points available at each race towards the coveted Series Champion awards.
