The 2010 Rivanna River Regatta Canoe and Kayak Race is coming May 8!

The racers are coming! The racers are coming!

Join us on May 8 for the 5th annual Rivanna River Regatta Canoe and Kayak Races. There will be several classes of races for canoe and kayaks (solo and dual/tandem) and a shorter, Youth (under age 14) race. (Under Age 14 race has been canceled.) If you just want to paddle the river during this time but do not wish to enter the race then by all means come on out, enjoy the fun and watch the racers wizz past you on the river. Spectators are welcome all along the race route but the best vantage point and most excitement will be at the finish line at Darden Towe Park.

Racers should start assembling on the upstream side of the Route 29 bridge (just north of the DoubleTree Hotel and Sam's Club) at 9am for check-in and registration. First heat starts promptly at 10am. More details can be found on the printable flyer.
