Round the Rock 2016–Insane Weather, and Accomplishment of a Lifetime.

round-the-rock-001

Round the Rock 2016 tested the mettle of the heartiest stand up paddle racer-brining almost all competitors to their knees towards the end of the race.  Winds up to 40 miles per hour and chest high waves demoralized the pack who came in shell-shocked and ashen colored.  Once across the finish line, however, all knew they had raced their hardest race, and learned something about themselves they never knew before.

We also talk with Dan Eberhardt, the co-founder of “Round the Rock” who has been stoking the Pacific Northwest with this epic 13 mile race that is one of the oldest in the country and raises tens of thousands of dollars for Cancer research.

We end the story with some incredible live audio clips of shell-shocked racers coming across the finish line.
