Whether you’re an avid paddler looking to get in on a competitive river race, or simply in search of laid-back family fun,  Race for the Rivers 2014 is the event you’ve been searching for! With water education, restoration and recreation as the focus, The Greenway Network is set to stage their seventh annual Missouri River paddling event on on August 23, 2014.

Paddlers have their choice of two canoe and kayaking races:

40 Mile: Still a race for serious competitors, the 40 mile is a one-day race from Washington, Missouri to the Race for the Rivers Festival at Frontier Park in historic Saint Charles.

GOOD NEWS!  We have added a shuttle from Bishop's Landing in St,. Charles that can transport you and your boat to the Washington start point.  To register for the shuttle, please go to:   https://www.greenwaynetwork.org/get-involved/boat-shuttle-registration---race-for-the-rivers.php .

20 Mile: Designed for the less experienced racer and/or recreational paddlers, this is a (non-stop) friendly competition race at a discretionary pace. This event begins in Weldon Spring and concludes in historic Saint Charles at the Race for the Rivers Festival in Frontier Park.

Festival Saturday » Aug 23, 11 am – 5 pm

As always, The Festival is open to any and all who are interested in good food, great music and more information about how to encourage and enjoy healthy rivers. All tax deductible pledges will go to support Greenway Network's various clean water initiatives.

Back again this year, Ride for the Rivers offers yet another way to join in the fun! Riders are invited to cheer on the paddlers in a self-paced trek along the Katy Trail. Participants have their choice of a 5 mile or 25 mile loop that begins and ends at the Race for the Rivers Festival in Frontier Park or a 35 mile trek from Washington, MO to the festival.
