2015 River's Edge Paddle Sprints presented by Huga Bar

Event Information

Huga BarJoin us for the 3rd and 4th events of the 2015 Alpine Shop Off-Road Racing League at the brand new River's Edge Park! This is the first year the Off-Road Racing League has included two paddle events, and we are excited to get more people on the water.

For two nights in June, racers will test their fitness on a super-sprint course set up on River's Edge Lake. June 11th will feature a straight-up, flat-out, down-and-back sprint. June 25th will feature a more technical slalom-style course. Paddlers will be able to use their own boat, or one of the Alpine Shop's demo boats for no additional cost. PFDs, paddles, and spray skirts are also available at no cost. 

Races will be run as individual time trials, and paddlers may make as many attempts to better their time as daylight allows. Of course, we'll have our famous post-race refreshments available so you might want to put your best effort first, and then have time to enjoy the River's Edge!

River's Edge Park is a great place to bring your family for the evening. The lake is 100% visible from any point on shore, making it easy for family members to watch each other race. The park also features two miles wood-chipped hiking trails, and even an elevated boardwalk to explore! Bikes are also welcome.
