LATEST NEWS – 2023 Event Set for June 9 & 10

We’re celebrating our 10th year with our 2023 festival’s kick off event on June 9, with the races on June 10!  It’s time to get your team together and make plans to bring your family, friends, and neighbors out to enjoy two days full of unique fun!
We will again offer the option for teams to rent a generator, fan, and/or lights for their space in Athlete’s Village (while supplies last)! Check out the team recruitment packet for all the details!
We’ll see you at the lake to enjoy some great weather, amazing food from select food trucks, while we raise money for a great cause: Pulaski County’s abused and neglected children!

How To Form A Team

Here’s what you need:

  • 20 paddlers (friends, family, colleagues, etc.)
  • 1 drummer who is light and loud
  • 3-4 alternate paddlers is a good idea but not required

Each team will designate a captain to coordinate the team. This person can be either a paddler or the drummer.
