The Vail Recreation District partners with the Eagle River Water & Sanitation District, Town of Vail and Alpine Quest Sports to host the annual Vail Whitewater Race Series. The races will be divided between three categories, including kayak (under 9’6″), stand-up paddleboard (SUP) (under 11′) and 2-person raft* (under 10′) teams with different course challenges every week. The course challenge for each event will be determined the day of the race based on river flows. Races typically start at the Covered Bridge and end at International Bridge. The Vail Whitewater Race Series is open to all paddlers ages 16 and up and intermediate to expert abilities. The skills to run Class III whitewater in your chosen craft are required.
