In 2002, local kayakers hosted a successful grassroots race on the creek with no more than a keg of beer waiting at the finish line. The next year Mountain Games took Homestake Creek nationwide as some of the world’s best kayakers hucked their meat down drops like “Leap of Faith” and “Piece of S**t.” Race rules are simple – the fastest time to the finish line of the ¼ mile creek wins.

This ¼ mile stretch of creek near Eagle County’s oldest town, Red Cliff, is the location of the Steep Creek Championship. Homestake is for experienced kayakers, but spectating the race is extremely fan-friendly! By car it takes about a half hour from Vail Village to reach Homestake Creek for the competition.
