MORE ABOUT THE RACE Presented by Alamo Beer Company and Valero Energy Foundation, the race is a team or solo event that involves kayaking 4k down the beautiful San Antonio River or running/walking a 5k on the redeveloped Mission Reach Trail to the finish line at Mission County Park 2 (near Padre Park).

1) An individual can choose to kayak the 4k water course only ($50, optional kayak included)

2) An individual can choose to run the 5k land course only ($35 earlybird pricing)

3) A team of two can choose to split the 4k kayak and 5k run courses by doing one each. Teammates begin at the same time in two difference locations, there is no baton pass. In this manner, it is not a traditional relay but still a very fun race! ($80, option kayak included)
