Canoers, kayakers, and paddleboarders are welcome to compete in this fun 9.25-mile race on the Iowa River! Community members looking mainly for a fun competition can enter into the recreational event, while serious racers (you know who you are) can enter into the competitive event. Many more helpful tips on registration are explained in the registration pages.
The race is $30/person through online preregistration ($40 day-of registration -those choosing this option will still need to create a PaddleGuru profile). Included in the race fee is an athletic-style t-shirt with the logo shown above, and a hearty meal following the race. All profits help to expand the Johnson County Conservation's environmental education program.
Rental canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards are available for $10. The supply is limited, so reserve your rental early by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the email your name, address, phone number, and number/type of rentals. Payments must be made in cash upon check-in.
