You may have heard about our 6th annual Sprint and Splash Festival of Races event on June 17 at Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township – which offers a great way to kick off summer as it includes a variety of competitive events, as well as music, food, craft beer and a multitude of vendors. But did you know signing up at one of our Kuhnhenn Brewing Co. registration events this week will enter you into a drawing for a free kayak (and your first beer is on us!)?
Make sure you are part of this exciting event and register now through a really fun opportunity we have put together. You can always register online at www.SprintandSplash.com; however, this year, we are excited to announce two on-site registration events at Kuhnhenn Brewing Co. These events will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 20 at the Warren location and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 22 at the Clinton Township location. Anyone who registers at Kuhnhenn will receive the early registration discount. Your registration on-site at Kuhnhenn also includes your first drink, Make Macomb Your Home swag and you will be entered into a drawing to win a kayak!
Sprint and Splash starts off the day with a 6-mile stand-up paddleboard (SUP) race. Following the SUP race is the duathlon, which combines a 5K run and a 2-mile paddle (kayak or SUP). Sprint and Splash also offers a 5K Fun Run and Walk (for those who want to stay dry) and a 2-mile recreational SUP race. The Sprint and Splash Beach Village is open throughout the day, giving participants and spectators the option to visit local vendors before or after their race. Additionally, all racers receive a complimentary breakfast and will have the option to purchase a variety of delicious craft beer from Kuhnhenn Brewing Co. All participants receive a finisher’s medal, a race shirt and a swag bag!
Sprint and Splash is a fundraising event with the unique purpose of promoting and celebrating Lake St. Clair, which is truly the heart of the Great Lakes. Sponsorship or participation in this event supports both the Lake St. Clair Tourism Initiative and the Clinton River Watershed Council. Both organizations work to improve the regional economy by increasing tourism to Lake St. Clair and its coastal communities while also striving to protect and restore Lake St. Clair, the Clinton River and the surrounding natural areas.
Henry Ford Macomb Hospitals is the event’s presenting sponsor.
