North & South Rivers Watershed Association

The Great River Race Isn’t Just for Racers!

The Great River Race is a bit of a misnomer. It is an amazing paddling event on the North River, but not everyone that participates is a serious racer. Lots of people take it at their own pace and just enjoy the scenery. For the less serious, but creative paddler, there is also the Best Decorated Boat or Boater division. After the race, join us as the fun continues at Luddam’s Ford Park (just a short walk from the takeout). There will be FREE hotdogs, ice cream, music, kids activities, plus a FREE IndieFerm beer or Kombucha for participants. The party starts at 1:00pm with awards given at 2pm. It’s a fun day for everyone!

The Great River Race is on Saturday, August 11 with an 11:00am start time. The race is $55 for the first participant per craft and each additional participant on the same craft is $10. You can also join our fundraising team to help bring more kids out onto the water. Become a FundRacer, with a minimum goal of $150, your registration fee is FREE. Register online now!
