Course & Maps

All Checkpoints will be marked with a pink round buoy placed just slightly before and to the corresponding side of the river as the checkpoint. Please approach all checkpoints and finish with caution to avoid colliding with other paddlers. To avoid injuring our volunteers or your boats, we will not assist you with your vessels at the checkpoints unless you request it.
