Intermediate Race: This race is great for a paddler that has some experience paddling.

Exercises consist of but are not limited to; bear crawls, push-ups, sit-ups, planks, etc.
Advanced Race: This race is dedicated to the experienced paddler that is interested in not just paddling but competing. The advanced paddlers will make 2 laps around the island and complete 8-10 fitness challenges per lap. This race will be tough, as you will be racing against extremely fit paddlers.
Advanced Turn and Burn Race: This race is an all-out sprint around a series of buoys where each racer must execute high speed power turns.
All of the proceeds go to Onslow Community Outreach, which is a great organization that aids in helping homeless veterans. We hope to be able to provide bus tokens to vets for doctors’ appointments, accommodations at the homeless shelter, assistance in construction of the new homeless facility and much more.
Registering for the VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge is a great way to support your community and veterans in need. There are over 1,000 homeless veterans in North Carolina alone! Help us make that number ZERO!
