Thank you to all who participated in the 2017 Great Russian River Race!

We’ll see you next year!

The summer season on the Russian River kicked off with our 7th annual canoe, kayak and SUP race on June 3rd.

There was a 4-mile course for recreational paddlers and an 8-mile course for experienced paddlers and pros. Both races began at 11 a.m. and both ended at Johnson’s Beach with a free┬áRiver Race Party from Noon-4 p.m. for the community to enjoy. We had 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 next year!
