As of now the race is still a "go" for Saturday. The river level is near perfect!
The Race Coordinator is monitoring the weather closely and will make an announcement here if anything changes.
Rain is in the forecast but unless there is lightning at race time or the river rises to remarkably high levels, we will run this race in the rain.
Please note, Rivanna River Company is providing a free shuttle BEFORE the race from Darden Towe Park back to the starting line, so get there early enough to drop your boat and gear at the starting line and take your car to Darden Towe Park and catch a shuttle back.
Alternatively, we always have volunteers who will drive you back to the starting line to get your car after the race.
Friday 5/17 update, 9:20am. ~~Still a "go"~~
Word from the Race Coordinator:
"We'll go rain or shine with two, 'No Go' reasons:
1. If there are thunder storms close by with lightning
River level, 9:20am Friday, May 12, Palmyra. 712cfs-A great level!
