Head-to-head kayak action takes over the class III and IV rapids of the Competition Channel in this single elimination race. Each competitor is guaranteed one timed run while negotiating a minimum of three mandatory gates with up to 6 other boaters in each heat. Head-to-head runs will follow based on rankings from timed runs, with the fastest competitors advancing to the next round. For all whitewater races, participants must have prior experience on similar whitewater in the same discipline (kayak or SUP). Participants must provide their own equipment. Boats must be plastic and no longer than nine feet. C1’s and K1’s will race in the same category. Men and women will race together should there not be sufficient paddlers for separate classes.
Friday, Oct 1– 7:00pm
Mandatory pre-race check-in and pre-race meeting will take place at the Kayak Center 30 minutes prior to the race.
