Whatever It Takes on Gun Lake

Shelbyville, Michigan, United States

WHATEVER YOU DO don t miss the 3rd annual WHATEVER IT TAKES ON GUN LAKE, Shaka SUP Racing s season finale paddle race on the beautiful, 3000+ acre Gun Lake in Shelbyville, Michigan. This event also wraps up Midwest Paddle League 2021 racing series with the end-of-season trophy ceremony to follow. We are offering a 1 mile course for youth/beginners/intermediates, and for the more experienced/want a challenge we are offering new 5k and 10k courses. Like all our events in 2021, the racing craft categories include SUP, kayak, surfskis, outriggers, and prone. ALSO, IF YOU LOVE RACING, make this a competition weekend by also joining us for our Paddle for YOUR Cause this day before this race 9/11/21 at nearby Lake Lansing, Haslett, MI. More fun, charity, paddling and Community time with an after race MSU tailgate! Register @shakasupracing.com or @paddleguru.com. It s also our honor to continue supporting Mackenzie s Animal Sanctuary, the midwest s largest sheltered no-kill sanctuary for dogs, Lake Odessa, MI as our charity for this event. It was founded by the Azzar family in August of 1999 after the passing of their beloved dog Mackenzie. Go to mackenzies.info for more information. We donate $5 of your $35 registration fee to them, and you also get an awesome event shirt but only if you register by 8/27/21. BUT, if racing and charity isn t the only reason you come out, there will of of course be an END-OF-SEASON AFTER PARTY to celebrate Community (love MPL’s motto – Community 1st, Competition 2nd!)! So come on out for one last paddle, whether your its your first time or competing for those final MPL series points…Whatever It Takes on Gun Lake is a great way to say Aloha summer! FYI NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION WILL BE ALLOWED for safety reasons. Sorry for the inconvenience but safety is #1! No Equipment, No Problem! Gun Lake Rentals are available right next door for SUP and Kayak equipment needs. Please go to their website @gunlakerentals.com to reserve any needed equipment.
