SUP 4 The CUP & NatiNKY Nine Mile at Ohio River Paddlefest

Bring your SUP, Kayak, Prone, or Canoe and join the The Explore Kentucky Initiative , Project 908 and Stand Up Paddle Cincinnati, for the biggest Kentucky Waterman Series event of the season at the world famous Ohio River Paddlefest 2018.


Racers will be a part of America’s largest paddling trip that is striving to host the largest multi discipline paddlesport race in the Midwest. Paddlefest 2017 brought a record number of paddlers to the Ohio River. Racers will launch several minutes before over 2000 paddlers get on the water down a closed course, which passes the downtown's of Cincinnati, OH, Covington, KY and Newport, KY. A unique aspect of this event is that all profits go to the Outdoor Adventure Club of Greater Cincinnati, which enables inner city children to experience outdoor activities free of charge throughout the year.
