Cold Hands paddle race this Sunday at Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro, California

This Sunday, the annual Cold Hands paddle race will take place at Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro, CA. The lineage of the race can be traced back to 2002 when two Los Angeles lifeguards placed a friendly wager to determine who could round the San Pedro breakwater the quickest. Since that time, the race has evolved into an annual contest among prone paddleboards and Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP).

Unlike most paddle races, the Cold Hands paddle race is 100 percent visible to spectators as athletes navigate a four mile course around the breakwater – starting and finishing at Cabrillo Beach. Participation in the annual race is free and donations, including the post race raffle, benefit the Sarcoma Alliance.

According to entries listed on PaddleGuru, 79 competitors have registered for Sunday’s event thus far. Awards will be given to men, women and juniors competing in prone and SUP divisions.

The schedule on Sunday morning is as follows:

  • 7:30 registration and ticket sales
  • 8:25 pre-race course safety meeting
  • 8:30 race start
  • 10:30 awards and raffle

Cabrillo Beach is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro, CA. Registration and additional race details can be found at
