The SUP race will start Saturday Aug 27th at 3pm from Pumphouse. Participants will float in from Pumphouse and assemble on the beach before the canyon entrance for photos and further race instructions. From there it will be a mass start and race through the rapids to the finish line right before radium hot springs. This is an exciting SUP sprint whitewater course including the eye of the needle rapid and others. The finish is the large rock on river right before the radium hot springs.
