Welcome to the 2nd annual Rock Island Paddle Rampage. This event is a 1,2, or 4 mile SUP race. The race starts at Horseshoe Bend Marina and travels up to Rock Island State Park. From there competitors will travel back down river to HorseShoe Bend Marina. Food, drink, shirts, awards, product demos, and tent camping are included for each ticket. This year we will also be providing a live band for people to enjoy after the competition. We also have Nashville Paddle Company helping us with rentals. If you need to rent a SUP they will actually carry your gear out to the race and have it waiting for you to pick up. Check out more details below or come to our website

Are there rapids - The video shows rapids that you will go near but never through
