This is now the 20th anniversary of the Race for the Cookies! The race originated at Green Lake in 1990. There were a few years when it was not held in the mid to late 1990s, revived at Renton and now in Kenmore. This is a 2000 meter with turn race and the format is that participants start one at a time on 30 second intervals. Coaches meet before the race and cede participants by speed. The faster paddlers start later, so it’s a game of trying to catch those who start before and keep from being passed by those who start later. We do our best to get people times, and everyone who finishes gets a cookie!
At noon, we will be hosting an open house for the Kenmore community to recruit new teammates, and help from experienced paddlers and parents from the other clubs would be greatly appreciated.
