WHAT IS SEVENTY48?
By Will Taylor
You may have heard the rumors about a new race in 2018. A race where people start in the evening and have 48 hours to cover 70 miles in a congested, complicated waterway past Seattle, one of the biggest cities in the Pacific Northwest. This race is the Seventy48.
Seventy48 starts in Tacoma, Washington at 5:30 on the evening of June 11. A motley crew of racers (anything human powered, including rowers, prone paddlers, standup paddlers, peddlers, canoeists and more) have 48 hours to make it 70 miles to Port Townsend, Washington, near the edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
