The summer season on the Russian River kicks off with our 6th annual canoe, kayak and SUP race. Adding to the excitement is the change of race course, which is moving downstream to Johnson's Beach in Guerneville this year. There will be 2 separate races, a 4 mile race for recreational paddlers and an 8 mile race for experienced paddlers and pros. Both races begin at 11 a.m. and both end at Johnson's Beach with a free River Race Party from Noon-4 p.m. for the community to enjoy. We'll have live music with Cahoots and the Bad Apple String Band, food trucks and beer and an award ceremony for the racers.
This race is a fundraiser for our educational programs and our Russian River trash clean-ups. We will need volunteers and sponsors to make this race a success. This is a great community event which we hope instills a love for the River and deepens our collective commitment to protecting it and keeping it healthy.
$50+ for racers, free for others.
