A 62 mile canoe race on the Colorado River
including 14.5 mile Stand-Up Paddle division
Saturday, January 24th, 2015
The Texas Winter 100k (TWO) launches it's 5th annual race from the banks of Ladybird Lake (aka: Town Lake) this coming January. The race is fashioned after the popular Colorado River 100 with the same boat classes and will give racers a reason to get in shape and stay in shape throughout the winter. Compared to most of the weather in the canoe racing world of North America, Texas is quite pleasant, with average highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's for January. That said, the temps have been known to get down to 8 degrees F and up to 85 degrees F, so anything can happen. Rainfall tends to be fairly moderate, but this is Texas, so it's anybody's guess.
The 2011 race was a bit cold and drizzly, the 2012-2014 races were warmer and sunny, so definitely plan on any conditions.
CR100: Racers may notice the shocking similarities between the TWO and the CR100. The goal was to give racers a mid-winter race and to tie the TWO with the CR100. In fact, the finish for the TWO is exactly the same as the starting location for the CR100: Fisherman's Park in Bastrop, Texas.
SPONSORSHIP: The TWO is currently accepting applications for sponsors offering financial support. We're also accepting "in kind" sponsorship for those who want to donate products and/or services for participants in the race.
