Joe Mullen, 81, and Ed Engel, 76, aren't letting their age stop them from entering this year's Water Tribe Everglades Challenge, a 300-mile kayaking and small craft event starting on Mullet Key, south of St. Petersburg, to Key Largo. Water Tribe Inc. founder Steve Isaac said if the pair complete the challenge, they will be the oldest entrants to do so.
ENGLEWOOD — Lion-hearted kayakers, canoeists and other small watercraft operators will be checking into Cape Haze Marina Saturday and Sunday.
Starting at 7 a.m. Saturday, 107 kayakers, canoeists and those piloting other small sailing craft — small enough to be launched by two people — are expected to begin a 62-mile trek from Fort DeSoto County Park on Mullet Key, south of St. Petersburg, to the Cape Haze Marina, to complete the Water Tribe Ultra Marathon.
