“Environmental Awareness One Race at a Time” – The organizers of the Lagoon Reef Eco-Challenge bring to you the Ambergris Caye Eco-Pro Challenge Kayak Race. Coming June 22 – 23, 2012, is the Eco-Pro Challenge Kayak Race with professional international kayakers from all over the world competing in a grueling 60-mile race around the entire island of Ambergris Caye.
The mission of this kayak race is to challenge the body and expand the mind by taking all participants on a challenging adventure race throughout the lagoons, creeks, wetlands and mud lands around the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize.
The goal of this kayak race is to bring awareness to our fragile eco system so that in turn we can preserve it and protect it for future generations! All participants must be a minimum of 15 years old. For the Eco Challenge Pro Race, both professional and amateur teams are allowed to participate. Only Malibu two and Malibu two XL sit on top kayaks will be allowed.
There will be three grand prizes (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) for each category, one for the overall race and individual station prizes for specific points along the route. Juniors will be awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
