The 9th Annual Adler Paddler is going down on St. Patrick’s Day 2019 in Long Beach, California. This grass roots paddle event has been going strong since 2010. The event is free and open to Stand Up Paddlers and Prone paddlers. Racers and non-racers are welcome. We have two distance options 2.8 miles or 5.6 miles. This race is in memory of SoCal racer Steve Adler who passed away from a genetic disorder called a thoracic aortic dissection. We want to remind everyone the importance of knowing your genetic health history as it can save your life or a loved one’s life. We will also be raising funds through raffle tickets & t-shirt sales at the race site. All proceeds go to the John Ritter Foundation.
