CARNELIAN BAY, California - Officially the longest running paddle race series in the Lake Tahoe region, the Tahoe Cup Paddle Race series celebrates its 11th anniversary in 2018 with four events scheduled between May and September. The series offers both the recreational paddler and the race enthusiast an opportunity to participate in SUP, prone paddleboard or OC1 class races on Lake Tahoe.

This year, all four events will take place on Lake Tahoe, with events scheduled on May 26, July 21, August 25 and September 15. Participants are invited to register for any or all of the events in the series online at www.tahoecup.org.

Event proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Lake Tahoe Waterman Association (LTWA), an organization dedicated to preserving the California Tahoe Conservancy land that provides public access to Lake Tahoe in Carnelian Bay, California. LTWA also works to educate the public on the value of non-motorized paddle sports that offer a unique way to live a fit and healthy Tahoe Waterman lifestyle. Beginning this year, the Tahoe Cup Paddle Race Series will be the primary fundraising mechanism for the Lake Tahoe Waterman Association.

“We’re thrilled to take on the management of the Tahoe Cup Paddle Race Series. This event series has grown and evolved over the past decade, but still focuses on the values that are at the heart of our nonprofit,” said Jay Wild, executive director of the Lake Tahoe Waterman Association and host of the Tahoe Cup Paddle Race Series. “The Tahoe Cup gets people out on Lake Tahoe in a non-motorized way and promotes the healthy lifestyle that the Lake Tahoe Waterman Association represents. It’s an honor to help take this established event series to the next level for years to come.”
