SEVENTY48 Race Start

When: June 2, 2023
Where: Dock Street Marina in Tacoma
Talk about “can of sardines”—we fill up the deep reaches of the Foss Waterway with more human-powered boats than you can shake an oar at, slap on some race numbers, and hit the “go” button. Come and watch the horde row, paddle, pedal, and pray their way north for 48 hours of glory.

SEVENTY48 Finish line Clubhouse and Bar

When: June 3-4, 2023 | 7 AM – 7 PM
Where: Northwest Maritime Center’s Oliver & Morris Meeting Rooms, Port Townsend
Cheer the racers into the finish line from the Clubhouse deck! A place for family, friends, and fans to hang out and wait for teams to arrive, second guess teams tactics, and view the hallowed yet courageous eyes of victory in every team that finishes. All ages are welcome and it’s totally free to hang out. Come have a beer, munch on peanut M&Ms, and lounge as you wait for your buddy/partner/family/person to stagger up the beach.

R2AK Ruckus

When: June 4, 2023
Where: Pope Marine Park, Port Townsend
That’s right. In Escherian fashion the finish line of the one is the start line of the other. SEVENTY48 will be finishing the day before R2AK begins. We’re going to have the SEVENTY48 award ceremony during the Ruckus. Awards given out at 7:00 PM, center stage. Find out the winners of our four classes and the NRS Random Hero Award.

Find out all about the Ruckus here.
