I will wait until the 1st of March to register.

Deadline to register is March 16th!

When you register, you will asked to choose a "Category".

Your choices will be:

Competitive or Recreational

Women or Men

Solo or Tandem

Canoe or Kayak

I will be Recreational - Men - Solo - Canoe

They will start the Competitive classes first.

So if you want to paddle as a group, and not concerned about your "racing" time

then choose "Recreational". The remainder will be based upon you and your boat.

Here is your to bring list:

Kayak (or Canoe) and Paddle


wide-brimmed Hat

Water - snacks (this event will take up most of the day)


Dry bag or other waterproof bag for keys, snacks, and stuff you don't want to get wet

3 sets of clothes - one to wear - one in a waterproof bag to bring on the float - one to keep in your car for a dry ride home.

The Challenge organizers provide a shuttle starting at 7:30 AM.

It has been my experience that it is best to arrive around that time.

It will get crowded and busy with 200 paddlers in a small area.

If you would like to carpool or caravan to the White Bridge, I can meet you

near Metrocenter off of I-17 at Peoria Ave. I will be leaving at 5:30 AM

Please email me directly if you would like to meet me there.

    Hi Ron, I Have decided it would be better for my family to go independently. The site didn't accept that many guests and I know how you feel about being responsible for people you don't know. See you there anyway.
