THE HUSKY HOP IS A POINT TO POINT RACE WITH A DIFFERENCE

Competitors will be bused out to the various start points across the coastline depending on their race distance. All races will start from the beach, competitors will head out to the first buoy and make their way back to the beach checkpoint, where they will receive a wristband and hydration (if required). After receiving their wristband participants will then re-enter the water heading out to the next checkpoint or finish line depending on their race distance. Wristbands will be used to confirm the full course has been competed.

Swimming and paddling along the coastline and "hopping out" is a safer way to keep competitors close to the shore and is great for spectators too.
