In much the same style as the 2014 Jordan race, here comes the 2015 Jordan race! Come out to race the legendary rivers of Revy!
Race will be composed of teams of two running from rapid number three down to the bridge. Times will be taken, and the fastest boaters will win prizes.
Safety will be provided by your team member. Any help you get outside that from other racers, organizers, bystanders or lost tourists should be considered a bonus so make sure you would be comfortable paddling the river alone with your friend on any other day, when glory is not on the line.
Gather at the powerline pull-out river right of the take-out. Registration (free) is from 1 – 2 pm, race starts at 3. Two minute intervals, One run. Be in your gear and ready to go when you’re meant to.
Awards will be held around 4:30. World Kayak and Endless Adventure will be providing prizes for the event.
After party will take place after. BYOB.
