Approximately 30% of persons diagnosed with early stage breast cancer eventually metastasize. A significant number of persons are diagnosed with their initial breast cancer and metastasis at the same time. In 2008, almost 49,000 women and men received the diagnosis and 41,000 died of the condition. For more information on Metavivor please visit their website at www.metavivor.org

The Start will be split into three Waves . Racers will make a water start in the Severn River off Bembe Beach and paddle 1 mile around three buoys and finish back at shore. Racers will then transition to their bikes in the Annapolis Sailing School parking lot. Shoes are recommended.
The 17.1 mile loop course is on paved, flat residential roads. The bike will proceed through the bayside communities including Arundel on the Bay and Bay Ridge. Racers will enjoy the bay setting and a view of the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay. Roads will be open to traffic and there is a chance riders may be stopped at the main community intersection to prevent excessive traffic backup.
The 3.1 mile run is a scenic out and back run through Back Creek Park. Finish in style, where your fans and cold refreshments will be waiting.
Race Divisions Include: Male & Female ages: 15 & Under, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+. Relay Teams must be made up of two or three participating members. Awards will be offered to the overall top 3 for both men and women and overall top 3 for teams. The awards ceremony will start at 12 pm.
There will be a cutoff for official race results with the race time limit of 2 hours and 40 minutes. At 2 hours and 40 minutes the official timed finish line will shut down. A time clock will continue running for all participants that finish after the time cutoff. It is hoped that all participants will finish the race in less than 2 hours and 40 minutes from their kayak start time.
Also, we need volunteers to help out for the event. Please contact Schuyler Engelhardt @[masked] if you would be interested in lending a hand.
Volunteers will need to show up at least 1 hour before start of the race.
