  • What makes a team?

    Teams have 16 paddlers and one drummer. It is recommended to have a few alternates. The festival crew can help you fill up your boat if you need assistance. Boats, steer-persons, life jackets, and training are provided.

    The minimum age for paddlers is 12 years with signed permission by a parent/legal guardian.

  • How much does it cost?

    The fee to enter a boat in the race is $2000. We welcome teams sponsored by local businesses. We also welcome teams of friends or family who want to raise the funds themselves.

    Individual paddlers are welcome. The entry fee is $120. You will be assigned to a team prior to practice week.

    All fees are nonrefundable and support SMCR, Inc.'s inclusive programs for community members with developmental differences.

  • Stuff you should know.

    Teams are encouraged to fundraise prior to the Festival and/or plan a simple fundraising activity to host at their tent during race day.

    Teams should decide on a "Team Theme" which would include team costumes and tent decorations.

    Time commitments: All day race day and also a few hours for practice one night during the week before the races.

    All team members are invited to attend the Opening Ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on August 15.
