For over a decade, we’ve been working with the Greenway Network to raise awareness of our state’s rivers and conservation efforts as well as just have some good old fashioned fun down on the water.
This year, we’ve updated our website to provide even more information about this fun, FREE, family-friendly event! Whether you plan to race, ride, or go to the festival, we’ve got information to help you plan your day.
We hope to see you there!
Race for the Rivers has been getting people down on the water since 2006! Over the years we’ve racked up quite a lot of press about this educational and recreational event.
