Join us as racers make their way from Weldon Spring or the Klondike Boat Ramp near Augusta, to Blanchette Landing in the historic Frenchtown neighborhood in St. Charles, MO. Please note there will not be a festival this year.
20 mile and 40 mile Missouri River canoe, kayak, and SUP races give paddlers the opportunity to actively promote clean water education, restoration and recreation.
Join us at the finish line at Blanchette Landing from 10 am to 5 pm for great food, live music and fun activities that highlight easy ways to encourage and enjoy healthy rivers.
Race for the Rivers is Greenway Network's primary fundraising and environmental education event. 100% of the funds raised from this event go to support Greenway Network's education, outreach, and conservation efforts throughout the year.
Our core goal at Greenway Network is to bring people to the river. We’ve found that the more people experience rivers and streams, the more they love them. The more they learn about them. The more they do to conserve them.
Race for the Rivers helps us with this goal: bringing people to the river. From participating in the race to taking a free paddle ride in our voyager class canoes, we strive to get everyone on, in, or near the water. And people of all ages can come to the festival!
The 2020 Race for the Rivers fundraising challenge is on! Our goal is to raise $10,000, all of which goes to the Greenway Network. Read on to see how your pledges and donations support their work and our rivers.
