2 Dam Days Paddle Marathon

"It was the toughest race I've ever been in... I'll be back!"

Time to embrace your inner athleticism! If you like kayaking, the Lake of the Ozarks, and a good challenge, this weekend's upcoming event is for you. 

JJ Twigs wants to be the first to give you all the information on the upcoming 5th Annual 2 Dam Days Paddle Marathon. This challenging and thrilling event will take place this weekend, October 4th and 5th.

The Races

The main events this weekend will be two-day races between the dams at the Lake of the Ozarks - a staggering distance of 82.4 miles! "The Extreme Unlimited" is open to all boats regardless of their specifications, and "The Extreme Limited" is limited to boats 18' long or less. These races are not for the faint of heart, but winners will get to take home pretty sizable purses... and ultimate bragging rights!

Is a massive trek across the Lake not really your thing? Shorter races are available as well. Try your hand at a 3.5 mile sprint ("Anything Goes") or a 15.5 mile short race ("The Sweet 16").

The Winnings

The main races will each provide their racers with three different opportunities to win: individual winner for Day 1, individual winner for Day 2, and best racer overall for both days. Visit www.2damdays.org for total payout information, but here's a snapshot of the payout opportunities for the Extreme Unlimited Race:
1st place: $1,120
2nd place: $840 
3rd place: $560
4th place: $280

The Pizza!

Okay, so maybe this isn't an official part of the races... but after the races are over, JJ Twigs Pizza & Barbecue invites you to celebrate your achievements at the best family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks! The finish line is the 0 mile marker at Bagnell Dam - and JJ Twigs' main location is practically right next door. We look forward to celebrating your victories with you!
