32nd ANUAL KA NAI'A RIG RUN - MAY 18TH, 2019:




The Rig Run, hosted by Ka Nai'a Outrigger, will be the second sanctioned California Iron long distance race in the SCORA racing season.  There will be a 4-mile short course and a 10 mile long course, depending on water conditions.

The last “real” Rig Run that went out and around oil platform “C” was 2010 – due to safety concern and logistical problems in the past, this is no longer a part of the course but remains the name sake of this long time race.


From South: 101 N. exit GARDEN.  LEFT on GARDEN to beach RIGHT onto CABRILLO BLVD. Drive about one mile, race site will be on left side, across from Santa Barbara City College.

From North: 101 S. to Santa Barbara, exit GARDEN.  Turn RIGHT on Garden, then RIGHT on Cabrillo Blvd. Drive one mile, race site will be on left side, across from Santa Barbara City College.

*To participate, all clubs MUST complete registration with SCORA online by MIDNIGHT before race day!  Any non-SCORA Crews MUST show Proof of Insurance.


Parking in beautiful Santa Barbara can be a pain, so it’s very helpful to arrive early if possible.  Bring $1 bills for the self-pay kiosk.

Trailers: Unload at Leadbetter, your club paddlers ready to carry canoes to sand.  Parking is $21/trailer (requires 3 stalls @$7 ea.)  Towing vehicles must unhitch.
