    General Information: This is a fun event. It consists of individuals running 2 miles (one mile up Tucker Rd. and back), then kayaking 2 miles (one mile south on Wolf River and back), and then doing the 2 mile out and back run on Tucker Rd. again. The race will be a good tune up for people getting ready for the PPP later next month, however, this will be a solo event only. No teams or relays for the Yak-A-Du.

    Cost: The cost will be $20. All participants & volunteers will receive T-shirts. The rest of the entry fee money will be used for the refreshments and awards. There will be no pre-registration. Just come sign up on race day beginning at 7am.
