Isthmus Speed Crossing – 2014 Hellenic SUP Cup

October 27, 2014

Early Morning, October 19, 2014, Corinth, Greece – Just a few hours before start time, an unexpected change in the current met event organizers with an interesting dilemma during the Grand Finale of the Fourth Annual Hellenic SUP Cup.

Once the decision was made to start the race from the opposite side of the canal, a record-breaking 147 athletes of all ages sped through the Isthmus of Corinth, in what has been described as a 3.6 mile SUP drag race.

Placed just a few meters before the finish, the only buoy turn of the race challenged riders to maintain focus and push their endurance through to the end.
