Identical in format to the Down River Kayak and SUP Sprints, the R2 Raft Sprint is a 4-mile raft race (two person rafts) on the Class II/III whitewater of Gore Creek from East Vail to the Covered Bridge in Vail Village. With a rally race format, rafters drop at timed intervals and teams will be racing against the clock. Rafts will be provided for competing teams (but you can bring your own paddle, if you want).
MPORTANT: Athletes should arrive at the put-in no less than 45 minutes before their race start time to go through gear check, attend safety meeting and pick up their competition bib. These times are 7:15am (Wave 1), 9:15am (Wave 2) and 11:15am (Wave 3).

DON’T MISS: 10 competition used Hyside rafts will be available for purchase after the race.
