Mark Hahn Memorial 300 Endurance Race 2009 National Champion
Lake Havasu City, AZ
2-28-2009 at Crazy Horse Campground
The Fifth Annual “World’s Longest Continuous PWC Race”, the race is being held again in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn who was instrumental in providing the momentum to keep endurance racing going strong and growing across the country before his untimely death during a PWC race in 2004. The “Team” format features two riders for runabout (sit down) boat teams and up to three riders for a stand-up craft. Solo riders are also welcome to “Ironman” the race on either style of boat, a real test of endurance and stamina reserved for only the true endurance zealots.
The race is returning to Crazy Horse Campground’s Main Beach site , and the 10 mile course we have approval from the Coast Guard for will pit all the teams against the wind, rough water and long runs that this event has become synonymous with.” In addition to all the weather and water conditions all the teams have to contend with, they will also be required to make fuel stops without spilling fuel and make rider changes several times during the race, while modifying their race strategies as the race progresses. There will be six different classes competing on the race course simultaneously, with all the racers competing for the overall title. At the conclusion of the race, each class winning team will be crowned the APBA National Endurance Champion for their respective class. Awards sit down dinner will once again be held at the Aquatic center Rods and Recs room.
We have on the water still photography and magazine coverage to chronicle the event for the riders. The awards banquet will feature a sit down dinner for over 400 people and over 100 award trophies to be presented to overall and class winners with a host of special awards that will again surprise their worthy recipients.
Race information, updates and results will be posted on the Mark Hahn web sitewww.pwcfun.com/markhahn300.asp, www.apbaracing.com, and www.pwcoffshore.com .
