July 10th- 14th, 2018
If you like races like the MR340 or the Texas Water Safari, you need to come out here and try the KR255. 255 miles of barely moving water, 14 mandatory portages, and beautiful scenery make for a spectacular event. Our race isn't about winning your class or division; It doesn't matter if you are a woman or a man, in a kayak or a canoe, solo or in a 4 person team. What it takes to win this race, scratch that, what it takes to FINISH this race is guts, determination, a stubborn streak, and some luck. So come on out, bring your GPS tracker and support team, and give it a go.
The Race begins at the confluence in Beattyville, KY and paddles to the mouth of the River at the Ohio in Carrollton, KY. Race boats are given exactly 100 hours to complete the distance, this includes the time it takes them to do the 14 portages.
Registration Deadline: July 4, 2018
Registration Costs: $100 per person
