The summer season on the Russian River kicks off with our 7th annual canoe, kayak and SUP race.

There is a 4-mile course for recreational paddlers and an 8-mile course for experienced paddlers and pros. Both races begin at 11 a.m. and both end at Johnson’s Beach with a FREE River Race Party from Noon-4 p.m. for the community to enjoy. We’ll have live music with the Cahoots, food trucks and beer, a costume contest, and an award ceremony for the racers!

This race is a fundraiser for Russian Riverkeeper’s education and trash programs. We hope you can join us in the sun and celebrate the Russian River with us!

REGISTRATION FOR THE RACE: $50/racer, registration opens February 15th on PaddleGuru.

The PARTY is free!
