On Saturday, May 2nd, Russian Riverkeeper will be hosting the 5th annual Great Russian River Race. The Race will include kayaks, canoes and SUP's.
This year, the Healdsburg Running Company is also offering a 5K running race that will end at Memorial Bridge, just in time for our party. If you would rather run than boat, you can sign up for their race, which will still be supporting our programs!
Advanced and expert paddlers will compete in a 15-mile Bridge-to-Bridge Race, starting at the Alexander Valley Bridge. Recreational paddlers will do battle over the 5-mile Rio Lindo Race, starting north of Healdsburg. Both races will finish at the Healdsburg Memorial Bridge, welcomed by the free River Race Party featuring great food, local beer & wine and live music on the banks of the River. Not racing? Come to the free party and cheer on the racers as they cross the Finish Line.
The emphasis of the Great Russian River Race is adventure, competition and fun. Race winners will share over $5,000 in cash and prizes. The two races are designed to accommodate professional athletes, recreational paddlers as well as families. Professional outfitter River's Edge Kayak and Canoe will manage the river operations.
Entries are now open and we recommend that interested paddlers visit the website and sign up while there is still space. Early registration discount ends April 27th.
