1) Welcome to the Team

To facilitate a good competition we need a good race course, permits, safety boats, registration, and timing. All include their unique set of challenges. Having a team of committed individuals to help these elements come together can sure help. We would like to say aloha to the latest additions to the team, Marian and Sam. They will be helping us out with registrations! Mahalo!

2) Green Energy Sponsors The Gorge Race Hydration

Big mahalo to Green Energy for donating drinks for The Gorge 2019! Green Energy is a Hawaii based natural and organic energy drink that is Powered by Kale! Mahalo Alan, Tannya and team!

Each can has 150 mg of organic plant-based caffeine, the equivalent to a cup of coffee. It does NOT contain the junk found in most mainstream “Energy Drink” products and workout drinks, stuff like taurine and synthetic B vitamins.

 

3) Women’s/ Mixed Race Capped at 60 Crews
