Here’s how the #BayPaddle200 Challenge works:

  1. To officially join the Bay Paddle 200 Challenge, create an account using the form below. To demonstrate that you’ve got “skin in the game” we suggest a $10 donation to get started. $10 plants 100 oysters in the Bay.
  2. Playing off of the Bay Paddle Team’s 200 mile paddleboard, set your own SMART (safe/specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely) #BP200 goal. In the given timeframe you could:
    – Do a 200+ mile paddleboard,
    – Run 200 miles,
    – Spend 200 hours practicing yoga,
    – Work your way up to a 200 lb. bench press,
    – Complete a double century cycling challenge,
    It’s up to you!
    We only ask that you clearly articulate a goal so that we can cheer for you along the way – and celebrate you when you’ve achieved it!
  3. Track your efforts. This is a group of honest folks, and yet we still we recommend keeping track of the dates, times, distances, pounds, miles, whatever metrics are relevant for your #BayPaddle200 goal using a notebook or spreadsheet. Tracking your progress helps you feel the full impact of your accomplishment!
  4. Don’t over do it – there are 126 days between Memorial Day (May 25) – Sept 18, that’s plenty of time to safely achieve your #BayPaddle200 goal.
  5. Have fun – it’s summertime, after all! Post pictures of your activities on social media using the hashtag #BayPaddle200.
  6. Go the extra mile… If you donate $200 AND complete the #BP200 Challenge, then we’ll send you an official Bay Paddle hoodie and feature your story on the Bay Paddle #BayPaddle200 webpage and social media!
