Good luck to everyone racing the virtual M20 this weekend!

Be safe. Bring tons of water. Bring nutrition. Have fun. Race hard.


Aloha M2O Virtual Paddlers,

Please note that we have extended the window for submitting results, photos and GPX uploads due to inclement weather for some of our paddlers and time zone challenges.  The new upload window is now through Sunday, August 1st Hawaiian Time. 

The event has over 1,700 athletes registered from 55 countries. Paddling globally together.  Let that sink in!  Our team will be focusing this weekend to leverage the content collected from you all and announcing some athlete drawing giveaways.  These efforts will continue through next weekend.  Initial results will be posted by this Wednesday morning and then again after the window closes Sunday on August 1st 11:59 pm Hawaiian Time. 

Some of our International athletes have not received their gear packets yet due to some unforeseen challenges at a few points of entry. PLEASE know that there is nothing in the gear bags that you need for paddling. The gear is for you to enjoy and wear post race.   

For those registered:


Here are the steps to share your experience with us (and post your results!)

The first step in participating is to submit your timing data. Please go to —– >this FORM <—-to submit your results. This results form is to be completed by all athletes who want their results listed. Solo paddlers and EACH relay team member need to submit a separate form.

If you have access to your GPX file from Garmin (or other device) you can upload it straight to DotVision at THIS LINK.  You will be asked to set up/register an account with DotVision.

We ask that you send us any photos or videos that you might capture during your paddle at THIS LINK. If possible, we would love for you to say on camera:

  • Your first and last name
  • Location
  • A word on the conditions

Videos can be shot on a GoPro, iPhone, Android – whatever you have available. Our media team can work with anything. We also welcome your photos as they help us tell the story as well.

Wishing everyone a safe, fun and fast paddle!
