The Texas Water Safari will take place Saturday, June 13, starting at 9 a.m.
Billed as “the world’s toughest boat race,” the safari starts from Texas State’s Aquarena Center on the San Marcos River and continues down the Guadalupe River. Contestants must make certain timed checkpoints each day to stay in the race, which spans 260 miles.
Participants must have all provisions, equipment and items of repair in their possession at the start of the race. Nothing may be purchased by or delivered to a team during the race except water and/or ice. Each team must also have a captain whose responsibility it is to follow the team by vehicle to keep track of their location and condition.
The teams cannot receive any assistance of any kind except verbal and must travel day and night, nonstop, to be competitive and cross the finish line by the 100 hour deadline.
