How it works

The Shaw and Partners Dash for Cash features fifteen of the worlds best paddlers competing over three races to find the ultimate sprint king and queen.

The race will start 600m offshore racing directly to the beach will a small run to the finish.

This event is open to anyone. In the Open Category fifteen paddlers will be selected from trials and pre-selection to compete in the three race final Dash for Cash. In addition there will be age category races (straight out finals). Competitors can enter in both the open and age category races. You will need to enter in both by completing two seperate online entries.

Open Category Race

The top fifteen male and female paddlers for the final races will be selected using the following criteria.

Trials – We will be holding trials on the morning of the event to select the finalists for the open categories of this event. There are ten spots open that will be filled from the trials. The trials will consist of two heats then a final if numbers exceed 20 paddlers.  If less than 20 paddlers it will be a straight final. The top ten join the five pre-selected listed below.

Pre-selected – The top five paddlers from each gender from last years Doctor are all pre-qualified for the final. If any of these competitors cannot attend, the next place along will receive the invitation.

The final will consist of three races where the back competitors are eliminated. The winner of each race picks up prize money which increases with each race.

Age Category Races

We will also have straight one race finals for  age categories to be held between the trials and the main event. Age categories will be updated soon.
