The King & Queen of the 1K race was a very interesting race for the Paddle League in 2020.

To recap, here were the rules of the race:

The King & Queen of the 1k is a 1k race that requires you to have a good balance between technique and sprints.  Since most of us can’t all our sprint for 1k, to get the best time, you’ll need to have a great strategy to keep your speed but not blow up! This race also requires skill in sprinting, starts, technique, and strength, and a great connection with the water to find the one person that can pull it all together quickly and pound it out!

This was a one direction, paddle from a dead start, current-less race.

The overall fastest in this race is as follows.  A big congratulations go out to the following:

  1. Matt Anderson from New Zealand with a 4 minute and 50 second time
