This new format resulted in a significant increase in the number of participants over the past 5 years and allowed the Jaycees to increase their support for local charities and youth sports programs.
We are looking forward to a 9th year under our new format and look forward to once again SELLING OUT. The race course along the Madison Shoreline is beautiful and the Surf Club is the perfect venue for such a race. (Please be aware that dogs are not permitted at the Surf Club, per Town regulations). We are confident that you will enjoy the experience and want to come back next year.
