Red Bull Urban Portage
Red Bull Urban Portage is a 10-mile canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP) race through the Chain of Lakes and its tributaries in Minneapolis taking place on Saturday, October 13. The race is open to male and female individuals in five different categories: Men (solo), female (solo), men (tandem), women (tandem) and coed (tandem). Red Bull Urban Portage will begin at the Calhoun Executive Center at Bde Maka Ska with participants needing to portage through challenging and breathtaking terrain at multiple points along the course to reach the finish line at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park.
Red Bull Urban Portage is the ultimate adventure race. Over the course of the race, the competition will feature part paddling, running and will also test navigational acumen. After competitors navigate the most direct route through the Chain of Lakes, the only markers on waterways will be the portages. The challenge each participant will face is to either risk following the boat in front of you or reference your map and outmaneuver the competition. Whether you race solo or with a partner, in whatever human-powered vessel you choose, the first to cross the finish line will be the Red Bull Urban Portage champion in each respective category.
