Downriver Paddle


Participants will start at Reedy Creek and race downriver through First Break, Hollywood, Fish Ladder (VEPCO Levy), Pipeline, and on to the finish at the 14th Street takeout.

And be prepared to test your skills and showoff to the crowds as you will have to complete a mandatory ferry just below the Potterfield Bridge at designated buoys. Racers will be sent off in a mass start based on gender and boat type and the fastest time will win! Pick your boat, kayak, canoe, or SUP.

Through May 9: $20
May 10 – May 15: $25

Includes a cool event t-shirt

Entries are non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-deferrable, even in the case of a race cancellation, postponement, event format changes, and/or if you are unable to participate.
