This week we discuss preperation and training for a stage race. Plus we explore concerns and misconceptions surrounding women and trail running.
This year marked Randy's 4th annual SUP pilgrimage across our great state of Tennessee. Beginning September 7th, the trip took him about 290 miles from just shy of the Kentucky border all the way to the skirts of the Alabama state border via local rivers and lakes. His completion of this trip each year has heightened awareness for the potential of endurance stand up paddling, while testing his own SUP limitations, and has raised funds to improve paddling in the area.
Randy Whorton is well known for being the founder of Chattanooga's Wild Trails Organization, with a mission to encourage and promote a healthy and active lifestyle through trail running and other forms of outdoor recreation. A Chattanoogan since 2005, with a love of the outdoors for nearly 30 years, Randy has a love for trail running, endurance SUPing, rock climbing, golf, slack-line, trampoline, along with an affiinity for juggling.
Originally a test to push his personal limits, his expedition now presses limits as well as helps raise awareness for the sport of paddle boarding. His trips in 2014-2016 took him an astounding 7 days to finish.
Randy's 2017 SUP THE STATE Journey
Day One: Randy hits the water about 8am, a mile or so from the Kentucky border. During this beautiful day he paddles down to Powell River, setting up camp about 7pm.
Day Two: Randy leaves his sweet camping spot about 7am, making his way from Norris Dam to Oak Ridge, TN.
Day Three: He heads out, traveling from Clinch River to Kingston, TN - making a sweet shore camping spot about 8pm in downtown Kingston.
We hope to get some L2 crew involved in the 2018 SUP THE STATE. Look out for future updates on this incredible excursion!
Thank you all for your support last year! Due to you, we’ve been able to introduce thousands of new people to SUP and the beautiful waterways of Chattanooga, TN! The season is now slowing down, though, and we need to sell our 2017 fleet to make room for next year’s new rides.
L2 Board Sale / Clean Waterways Fundraiser
Normally priced at $949, we are selling our fleet boards for the low price of $450.
We’re adding a Make an Offer button to these boards because we want everyone to able to enjoy the water. Please be respectful with your offers and know that all proceeds over $400/board are being donated to the local non-profit Wild Trails to help clean and maintain our beautiful waterways. We strongly encourage you to offer above the sale price if you are feeling generous and would like to help out with the maintenance of our creeks and river. Click here to read more about the work Wild Trails is doing for Chattanooga. You can also check out our blog post about some of the maintenance that we’ve helped with this year.
This "Sell Off" is a first paid, first served sale. Whoever buys one first gets to take a look at the entire fleet and take home the board of their choosing. These boards have been paddled hard day in and day out, meaning that they all have cosmetic dings and scrapes but due to their double layer of military grade PVC these boards are ready for years more on the water. Some boards will look more used than others - but all are water safe and ready for new homes.
Boards will include fin, carrying bag, patch kit and pump while supplies last. Paddle not included.
Last year our rental fleet sold out within 48 hours! Hurry while supplies last!
Looking for a hardboard? We still have a few fiberglass boards left from our demo day sale! Give us an offer on any of these boards, or grab them at their sale price.
