It's not a race... it's an opportunity, for your health! Take the Lake is four Personal Endurance Challenges held each Labor Day weekend on and around Lake Waccamaw, N.C. The free event offers people the chance to challenge themselves in a 16-mile Walk / Run, a 14-mile paddle, a 12+3-mile Bike & Hike, and a four-mile swim. Also try doing all four in one day in our Take the Lake X-TREME! That one's a race, with an entry fee.
