To kick off Beachstock, Stacey's Surf and Paddle hosts Stand Up 4 Change. Stand Up 4 Change is a WPA sanctioned competitive 6-mile ocean race and a non-competitive 1-mile kid/family race to benefit the Margate Business Association's Daniel and Maria Walters Scholarship Program and the MBA Children Fund. In addition, the 1-mile non-competitive race will provide an opportunity for the children of "OCMC" to donate 100% of the money they raise to six local charities. 

6-Mile Competitive Race Water Start/Beach Finish

Competitors will form a straight line between 2 buoys in the ocean. Competitors will head in one direction for 1.5 miles, round a buoy, head in the opposite direction for 3 miles, round a buoy, then head back for another 1.5 miles through original starting buoys. Competitors will finish by surfing in and running across the finish line in the sand. Paddlers must carry their paddles with them across the finish line. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for day off paddle updates.
