The 2015 version of the Emerald Coast Challenge will be held April 16th, 17th and 18th, 2015 at the Boardwalk in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. The Emerald Coast Challenge is a motorcycle skill and training seminar that is open to both skilled civilian riders and police motor officers. The event starts on Thursday, April 16th with a full day of practice for the competitors. Friday April 17th and Saturday April 18th will be the days of the actual competition for the riders. See our schedule of events here.
The event is hosted by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Department and Chapter XXV of the Blue Knight Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club. All profits from the event will benefit the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center.
All competitors will have the opportunity to compete for trophies in their respective class of competition. The competition will consist of patterns which each competitor will ride for time and accuracy. The patterns were designed by precision motorcycle riders as well as police motor officers. The goal is to be able to successfully navigate through the patterns without touching or knocking over the traffic cones. The challenging courses are designed to push the physical and mental capabilities of each rider. By participating in the Challenge, the competitors will become more adept in the handling of their motorcycle which will result in safer motorcycle riders.
