Lunatics SUP 5.0 Session

February 22, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

- FREE

The SUP VIC Lunatics POD are pleased to announce their monthly calendar of SUP 5.0 sessions starting Sunday February 22nd and running every last Sunday of the month on the Maribyrnong River in Footscray.

SUP 5.0 is all about competing against yourself, in fact we will not be publishing everyone’s times, just giving each participant their own personal times. It’s about beating yourself and having a benchmark each month on the same course at the same location, having fun, catching up with whoever turns up, and enjoying the BBQ that follows.

Fortuitously the course requires no buoys with the distance between the Fisher Pde Bridge and the Hopkins St/ Dynon Rd Bridge being (with turns) exactly 2.5km apart making a perfect 5.0km return loop. We’ll meet at Footscray Park Landing (just along from the Footscray Rowing Club) and set up at the BBQs there. Here’s the calendar for the year: Sunday 22nd February Sunday 29th March Sunday 26th April Sunday 31st May Sunday 28th June Sunday 26th July* Sunday 27th September Sunday 25th October Sun 26th July is a clash with the Canoeing Victoria Winter Series Footscray race run on the same course, so at this stage we will encourage people to participate in this in lieu of the 5.0 session, and consider running the 5.0 session either on the Sat or the week before depending on demand. Sessions will start at 9am and the BBQ will be fired up early. The event is free, with a $5 donation for those wanting to partake in the gourmet BBQ delights on offer. No need to register, just turn up.
