Be prepared. There are no rest stops, aid stations or support during the event. Please have electrolytes, food and water in your boat for the duration of the event.

Register on line. This makes it easier for us to plan for the correct number of people and reduces the stress of race day registration!


Have fun! If you're out for a challenge, you've found it! An 17 mile sprint in the Texas summer heat can be brutal! If you just want to have fun and enjoy the river with a great group of people, then you can do that too! You won't find a friendlier bunch than the Texas canoe racing community! They may even have you in a racing canoe before you know it!
